Set during the dawn of World War II and the disruptive decade to follow, “A Ritchie Boy” is the poignant, compelling tale of one young immigrant’s triumph over adversity as he journeys from Europe to America, and from boyhood to manhood. Different characters tell interrelated stories that, together, form a cohesive narrative about the circumstances and people he encounters from Vienna to New York, from Ohio to Maryland, and then to war-torn Europe, before he returns to the heartland of his new country to set down his roots.
Linda Kass was born in Columbus, Ohio to Eastern European immigrant parents. She has an MA in Journalism and spent her early career as a magazine reporter and correspondent for regional and national publications, such as TIME and The Detroit Free Press.
