Biography & Memoir • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1993

Funny people don't always have funny childhoods. Leaving Home is Buchwald's tale of a painful childhood, which took him from various shelters to a series of foster homes to New York's Hebrew Orphan Asylum --all before age fifteen. His story is compelling, and he tells it in his own indescribable way. Buchwald relates the story as if conversing over a cup of coffee. There's no attempt at vocal characterization because the characters are richly described through the text. You'll come away wishing for the unabridged version because Buchwald's story is so compelling. M.R. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: MAR 95]
