“Powerful . . . It successfully recreates a time and place and the journey of a soul.”—The New York Times
All beginnings are hard—that is the lesson David Lurie learns early and painfully in his life. As a boy in the depression-shadowed Bronx, he must begin to hold his own against neighborhood bullies and the treacherous frailties of his own health. As a young man in a world menaced by a distant, horrifying war, he must begin once more—this time to define a resolute path of personal belief that departs boldly from the tradition of his teachers and his own father, a courageous defender of their people.
Learning how to remember his past as he nourishes the future, David struggles to complete his first long journey into ancient beginnings.
