About the Author

Born in Basel in 1949, Rita Goldberg was brought up in the United States with time spent in Germany, where her father was an army psychiatrist. She teaches comparative literature at Harvard and is married to Oliver Hart, a British-born professor of economics at Harvard. She lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Reviews

"A double memoir that braids her parents' story with her own, and succeeds in articulating a difficult truth."
--The Economist

"At the heart of this engrossing memoir is her mother...The extraordinary tale is heroic. It strikes the reader as thoroughly romantic, even cinematic."
--The New York Times

"Goldberg writes eloquently of the 'volcanic pressures' that shaped her family's story and continue to haunt her own."
--Kirkus Reviews
