520    "How does one remember a world that literally no longer 
       exists? How do the moral imperatives to do so correspond 
       to the personal needs that make it possible? Told from the
       point-of-view of Marta Eisenstein Lane on the occasion of 
       her 80th birthday, Barren Island is the story of a factory
       island in New York's Jamaica Bay, where the city's dead 
       horses and other large animals were rendered into glue and
       fertilizer from the mid-19th century until the 1930's. The
       island itself is as central to the story as the members of
       the Jewish, Greek, Italian, Irish, and African-American 
       factory families that inhabit it, including those who live
       their entire lives steeped in the smell of burning animal 
       flesh. The story begins with the arrival of the Eisenstein
       family, immigrants from Eastern Europe, and explores how 
       the political and social upheavals of the 1930's affect 
       them and their neighbors in the years between the stock 
       market crash of October 1929 and the start of World War II
       ten years later. Labor strife, union riots, the New Deal, 
       the World's Fair, and the struggle to save European Jews 
       from the growing threat of Nazi terror inform this novel 
       as much as the explosion of civil and social liberties 
       between the two World Wars. Barren Island, finally, is a 
       novel in which the existence of God is argued with a God 
       that may no longer exist or, perhaps, never did"--
