Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

David Birnbaum is a middle-aged man at the crossroads — of youth and old age, of Orthodox Judaism and assimilation, of the well-worn past and an uncertain future. He is also at the dramatic center of this sensitive, often funny chronicle of three generations of a family straining to hold together in the face of changing cultures and shifting fortunes.

Throughout this extraordinary book, David struggles with the mixed loyalties he has felt since childhood and that continue to haunt his present and future. Capturing the hopes and conflicts of a Jewish family, from its most assimilated to its most Orthodox members, Like Never Before exudes on every page a poignancy and truthfulness that will print themselves indelibly in readers' minds.
