Reviews

"[A] small, wry memoir ... that is as miraculously loving and nonjudgmental as it is cleareyed." -- New York Times Book Review

"This rich story pays off with honest but lighthearted discoveries about loyalty and wealth" -- Publishers Weekly

"Zachter charmingly portrays the changing Lower East Side...Zachter never seems bitter, describing the discovery of his uncles' secret hoard with such surpassing sweetness and affection that readers won't dream of envying his newfound wealth...a warm family narrative." -- Kirkus Reviews

"[Zachter's memoir, with well-paced chapters that are nostalgic yet often humorous and pungent, gives a distinct take on the classic saga of working-class immigrant families struggling to succeed.... [T]his is recommended for all libraries." -- Library Journal
