    National Book Award winning author Sherwin Nuland introduces his father, a Russian immigrant who dreamed of a better life in America but found the opposite. In this memoir, we see what it cost Nuland to admit the inextricable ties between father and son and to accept the burden of his father's legacy.

    Overall

    honest, unsparing and profoundly moving- perhaps more so for me as a grandchild of russian jewish immigrants. i could hear my grandparents through his rendition of yiddish-english. i was transported back to my childhood in an extended family that was lost as the generations move further and further away from the shtetl. perhaps most importantly, his book cut a window into the immigrant generation, and to my parents, and by doing so helped me along in my own journey towards understanding.


    i binged listened to this book.
