About this title:
Synopsis:
When he witnessed his father's fierce resistance to a gang of kidnappers, Sidney Offit became aware that his family was different. He once overheard a camp counseler call him the richest kid in camp because, "Offit's father is the biggest bookie in Baltimore and maybe even the entire United States". In this elegant memoir, Offit--novelist, teacher, and curator of one of the country's most prestigious journalism awards--explores the complexities of his extraordinary father-son relationship.
