In a gentle upper-octave voice that adds a certain youthfulness to our impression of the man, Sherwin Nuland recounts the story of his life. All the while, he yearns to comprehend the torment, heartbreak, and ignominy that was so much a part of it, fueled to an overwhelming extent by his volatile father. It's a life of many shadings, many special insights as to the first-generation immigrant experience, and more than a few shocks along the way. Yet however agonizing or stunning the particular episode, and however the experience of reading may have affected him, the author maintains a distinct tranquillity, allowing listeners to imagine, for themselves, the churning and seething beneath.
