My Father is a Book creates a fascinating juxtaposition of two strikingly different families. It contains a discovered family story, the story of Malamud¿s parents, within the memoirist¿s own family story. It¿s remarkably even- handed: loving and fearless in its explorations, original in approach, and engaging as a narrative. Parts of it have stayed with me vividly. In particular, the passages that describe Malamud¿s relationships with his parents and brother are brilliant, somewhat understated and very moving. (The letters from Malamud¿s father are amazing.) I recommend this memoir both to those who like reading memoirs and to those who are interested in learning more about Malamud.
