Eleven Stories High

by Corinne Demas

Book review

Eleven Stories High is a memoir of a middle-class New York childhood, the perceptions of a girl growing up in a housing project that she deemed a "utopia of the fifties." The story follows the process of memory, rather than the conventions of chronology, and explores the concept of "home, " how a place like Stuyvesant Town — impersonal, symmetrical, utilitarian — shapes a childhood.
