Reviews

This is an extraordinary book, which was written by a person after he passed away. No one, not even his best friends, could revive Tommy better than his own gifted son. --Ehud Olmert, former Israeli Prime Minister; ...a literary tour-de-force in which the son reassembles the voice, the spirit of the father so absolutely that, for most of this big book, it is the man himself who turns the pages of his life and speaks directly to the reader. --Jewish Chronicle --Jewish Chronicle
