The Family by David Laskin

The Family

David Laskin, memorable for his nonfiction work The Children’s Blizzard, has again presented a gripping piece of nonfiction in his latest, The Family.  Part memoir, part family history and part world history, The Family takes a look at Laskin’s Jewish ancestors, from a long line of Lithuanian scribes to the aunt that created the Maidenform empire.  From Eastern Europe to Israel and New York City, The Family is a amazing journey of heartbreak and resilience.  I loved it!
