Louis Adamic's "Old alien" as a relic of ethnic differentiation in the U.S.A
Keywords:American literature / Immigrant literature / U.S.A.
The paper analyzes Louis Adamic 1940 story " The Old Alien by the Kitchen Window" as the foil to his 1928 reportage "The Bohunks".
The latter provoked a violent controversy among Slovene Americans due to its honest, straightforward and none-too-flattering presentation of the Slavic immigrants in America known as the Bohunks. "The Old Alien" story is both a portrait of an individual as well as a broader cultural and social analysis of Slovene American life.
