KIRKUS REVIEW

This is not for all young adults- any more than it is for all adults, but there are a good many who would find it a revealing episodic recall of the adjustments to becoming an American in the story of Lev Simon, Russian Jewish immigrant, illegally resident this side of the Canadian border. Old Lev is dying; but in the hearts and minds of his sons, he lives again, as they tell various stories of his youthful struggles, implementing each anecdote with the strong bonds of affection and respect and occasionally of loving laughter. The story of the making of an American.
