This review is from: Tough Jews: Father, Sons and Gangster Dreams (Hardcover)
This is one of the most fascinating books I have ever read. At times lyrical and at times comical and always interesting. Cohen tells two stories: that of the gangsters of Brooklyn and that of his father's generation coming of age during a time when american jews suffered from discrimination and learned of the holocaust. Both stories are interesting and, much to my surprise, intertwined. This will make a great gift.
