"Buckley Offit was a bookie. His son, Sidney, loved him and did not understand what his father did. Gradually, his son begins to see that the tough-talking, taciturn hard-ass that is his father is in actuality a criminal, which matters not as much as anyone used to reading thrillers would suspect it might. That is the strength of this remarkable little memoir: it upsets our preconceived ideas on the subject."
Robert Ward, Los Angeles Times Book Review, 06/18/1995Review:
"Throughout 'Memoir of a Bookie's Son', Buckley Offit remains a blurred, incomplete figure. The real focus is on his son's view of him over the course of a lifetime. In capturing this shifting picture, Sidney Offit seems to have finally figured out what to say about his father."
Hal Goodman, New York Times Book Review, 08/20/1995
