  • One of the funniest, most tragic and most touching books I have ever read. A testament to a family, a time and a place.

    Guardian
  • A masterpiece

    Irish Times
  • One of the most gripping, intense and moving autobiographies I have ever read.

    Independent on Sunday
  • It sweeps across 120 years of family history, weaving a tragi-comic saga of love and books, of Jewish life and immigrant life the world over, and of the universal madness of families. Read it now - I promise you won't read a more brilliant book in a long, long while.

    Daily Mail
  • Oz's account of his childhood is often very funny - and then profoundly moving, as he circles slowly round to confront the intolerable pain at the heart of it
