Minor Miracles: Long Ago and Once Upon a Time Back when Uncles Were Heroic, Cousins Were Clever, and Miracles Happened on Every Block
In this classic graphic novel, Will Eisner's pen cuts an expansive swath through all aspects of the human condition. A powerful portrayal of Jewish life in the New York City of Eisner's youth, Minor Miracles encourages similar introspection as it examines how luck and coincidence converge in everyday life in ways that, in hindsight, seem miraculous.

Eisner returns to his childhood neighborhood, basically a poor but working-class neighborhood, apparently in or around New York City. Most, but not all, of the residents are recent immigrants of Jewish descent, or their offspring. Eisner recalls some events in the neighborhood that seemed miraculous at the time, but sometimes turned out not so miraculously. Thus, they are minor miracles.
