A touching and hilarious memoir about an Orthodox Jewish boy growing up in Pittsburgh in the mid-20th Century, returning as an adult to help his family.
This is a story of what love can do and what it cannot.
In flashbacks, boyhood friends build their world in spite of the feared non-Jewish world surrounding them. Family love carries the “mentally retarded” Uncle Izzy, who can turn any serious moment into side-splitting laughter. Brotherly love embraces best friend Harold, who loses his way in the Sixties.
This portrait of the strength of family and community will leave the reader enriched, satisfied, and grateful to have
been invited in.
