Publisher's Summary

A detailed and well-written look at life in New York City from the 1920s to today through a memorable memoir about a boy who bounced around among different relatives and caregivers, through his school years, followed by his service during World War II. Cohen shares about his marriage and how he built a distinguished career as an educator in the New York City public school system despite his tough childhood and teen years, seeking out friends and romance resulting in a full and fulfilling life.

The courage Cohen shows throughout his life is an inspirational story for all ages, but especially for seniors who will learn you are never too old to find new and caring connections as well as for younger generations who will see this as a candid look at a previous time.

    "Lucky Cohen Family"

    The Cohens are lucky to have such a nicely done family history to pass on through the generations, it will be priceless for them. The first couple of hours in the 1920-30's is of general interest to all and interesting as he is passed from home to home, but the book gradually becomes so family specific and plotless that I was done long before the book. The audio was poorly editered, there are about 15 spots where the same sentence or phrase is repeated.

    Jewish orphan, NYC, 1920-30... It tempted me into the purchase as I had enjoyed Orphan Train recently... I'll leave for Cohens to enjoy.
