A remarkable memoir of the legacy of the German-Jewish diaspora.
Fascinating slices of Jewish family history . . . What makes [Hirsch's] life story worth a whole book is the way he presents his own share of Jewish dislocation and exile as he strove to scramble free of the shadows cast by his parents' tragedy. The wounds inflicted on the father, brilliantly portrayed in Last Dance as a man of intense and irrational defensiveness, leave their scars on the son.
