Fierce, orig­i­nal and brac­ing­ly hon­est, Ami Sands Brod­off writes with pas­sion­ate skill about nine close­ly linked Jew­ish char­ac­ters who walk the tightrope of sur­vival. Trou­bled teens and an expe­ri­enced psy­chi­a­trist, a truck dri­ver scarred by a near-fatal acci­dent and a recre­ation ther­a­pist strug­gle to build a com­mu­ni­ty and make their lives – and their deaths – mean­ing­ful. Fierce, orig­i­nal, and brac­ing­ly hon­est, this nov­el speaks to the author’s Jew­ish her­itage and the pow­er of fam­i­ly lega­cies and secrets.
