Overview

The author paints a riveting picture of a boyhood based on nail-hanging survival in a three generational Jewish household. The Catholic Church played a role in his youth that left him with guilt about killing their God. The church changed its message and freed not only their own adherents, but him, a Jew, as well. This book offers readers gripping personal traumas as Murry deals with his sons' devastating Illnesses and successes. Lowell Handler, author of Twitch & Shout: A Tourretter's Tale, and Associate Producer of the Emmy nominated film of the same name; and Evan Handler, actor and author of Time On Fire and It's Only Temporary- The Good and Bad of Being Alive, is the survivor of acute leukemia. Murry's personal journey is the story of a philosophy that stretches the boundaries of "memoir" while his search for a God speaks to all of us.
