Author Boris Fishman, whose family emigrated from the Soviet Union to the U.S., narrates this buoyant, revealing, and socially conscious family memoir, which includes many, many recipes. His resonant baritone is easy to enjoy; one notices his kind and relatable tone and judicious pace. The impact of the Holocaust is never far from the core of his articulate writing. On the other hand, on audio the recipes come off as lists. Throughout, Fishman's narration style remains consistent whether he's describing the funniest or the most awful of family circumstances or experiences. Lucid and controlled in both the writing and narration, this work makes for appetite-whetting listening. Happily, a PDF of the recipes is conveniently provided.
