Take Me to Coney Island illuminates the changing perceptions and many initiations of Hanna Davidson, daughter of Jewish immigrants, born and raised on a slum block in the East Side of Montreal. The stories flash backward and forward in time, beginning with the twenty-year-old Hanna's lament for the defeats of her parents. The collection ends with the outsider's love song -- addressed by Hanna to her husband while she snorkels with him underwater, recognizing her separateness even while they breathe as one.
