On Armistice Day 1933, the anniversary of his daughter's suicide, David Toback, a kosher butcher living on New York's Lower East Side, began to write his memoirs of coming of age and self-discovery in tsarist Russia. These memoirs culminate in his immigration to the United States. Forty years later, his notebooks were rediscovered by his granddaughter Carole Malkin, who wrote the Journeys of David Toback. This collaboration across decades and generations has given us a fascinating saga of restless wandering and growing self-consciousness, a life story that reads like the most skillful fiction.
