“In Beyond Brooklyn Edith Tarbescu tells her own story, but many readers will also recognize themselves in her compelling life-scenes and mini-play scripts. The daughter of immigrant Jews, transplanted with her New York roots largely intact first to Connecticut and then to New Mexico, Tarbescu keeps sane by making witty habitats out of words. Every visitor to her constructs is in for a treat.” — Ann Z. Leventhal, author of Life-Lines, Among the Survivors and The Makings of a Nobody.
"Tarbescu takes you on an emotional and eventful journey of a woman determined to find her voice. Along the way she lends that voice to the characters in her plays. The laughter, the pain, the loss, the love. All of these voices creating the choir of life. I couldn't put it down." --Margaret Champagne, Actress, Standup Comic
