Drawn to an image of her great-grandfather's ornately carved cane, Elisa New embarked on a journey to discover the origins of her precious family heirloom. In Jacob's Cane, New follows her lineage through Baltimore and back to the Baltic, encountering five generations of relatives shaped by the mass murders of the Second World War and the opportunities they found in America. A fascinating and beautifully told family saga, Jacob's Cane transforms the way we think about the immigrant experience of countless Americans.
Elisa New is a Professor of English at Harvard University. She lives with her husband, economist Larry Summers, and their children in Brookline, Massachusetts, and Washington, D.C.
