about

The beloved perennial classic—named as one of the books of the twentieth century by the New York Public Library.

Orville Prescott has called this American classic “one of the most dearly beloved and one of the finest books of our day.” Indeed, when A Tree Grows in Brooklyn was first published in 1943, four printing plants were required to keep up with the demand.

Seventy years later, readers are still fascinated by Betty Smith’s moving portrayal of the Nolans, a poor family living in the Williamsburg slums of Brooklyn. A poignant tale of childhood and the ties of family, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn will transport the reader to the early 1900s where a little girl named Francie dreamily looks out her window at a tree struggling to reach the sky.

Betty Smith (1896–1972) was a native of Brooklyn, New York. Her novelsA Tree Grows in Brooklyn,Tomorrow Will Be Better,Joy in the Morning, andMaggie-Nowcontinue to capture the hearts and imaginations of millions of readers worldwide.

“One of the most cherished of American novels….It is the Dickensian novel of New York that we didn’t think we had.”
