    When a writer is born into a family, the family is finished Czeslaw Milosz And, I might add, if the family isn t finished, then the writer is Gary Shteyngart, Little FailureThe writer Helen Fremont is not finished, but I got the feeling, from the book review for its sequel from which I found out about this one , that her family is giving her a run for the money That is what I learned a littleabout from this book I think I ll read that sequel as well, in hopes

    At times while reading this story, I wondered at any of the actual verity of facts It s not that I refused to believe this woman lawyer Or that I mistrust that she did not believe and desire to tell the entire truth It is just that I think the people who told it to her all had such emotional mental disability of after effect cognition that each and every detail needs to be taken with a grain of salt as to any context accuracy Even within the era and placements o

    Daughters research their Jewish history after learning that parents hid their identity to escape the holocaust and Soviets Juxtaposes the daughters lives with the horrors of their parents lives Though the book doesn t fully explore the issue, the author raises an interesting question about right to know parents history and to bring back to them memories they want to forget.
