The Arrogant Years free pdf "[Lagnado writes] in crystalline yet melodious prose." -New York Times Lucette Lagnado's acclaimed, award-winning The Man in the White Sharkskin Suit ("[a] crushing, brilliant book" -New York Times Book Review) told the powerfully moving story of her Jewish family's exile from Egypt. In her extraordinary follow-up memoir, The Arrogant Years, Lagnado revisits her first years in America, and describes a difficult coming-of-age tragically interrupted by a bout with cancer at age 16. At once a poignant mother and daughter story and a magnificent snapshot of the turbulent '60s and '70s, The Arrogant Years is a stunning work of memory and resilience that ranges from Cairo to Brooklyn and beyond-the unforgettable true story of a remarkable young woman's determination to push past the boundaries of her life and make her way in the wider world.
