In this eloquent and glorious memoir, New York Times reporter Joseph Berger reflects upon his days growing up in Manhattan’s Upper West Side following World War II. Berger and his family, Polish Jews who survived the Holocaust, arrived in New York in 1950. Their fascinating story of adaptation in a strange, new world speaks universally of the trials millions of American immigrants have faced.

I alternate my listening between fiction and non-fiction. For non-fiction listening I enjoy memoirs and autobiographies and this is one of the best I have heard. I enjoyed this book because of the combination of personal stories mixed with history. You don't have to be Jewish to enjoy this book although I do think there will some extra resonance for Jewish listeners in this book.
