Elisabeth Wynhausen explores what it means to survive and to thrive in a world of rapid change. Wynhausen tells of an extraordinary, inspirational character and reflects on the mysterious quality that is resilience. A tribute to the author’s mother, who died at the age of 92, this account is a witty and inspirational memoir that delves into family life and the immigrant experience.
