next review begins the same way; change okay here? Moskowitzid needed/in last sentence, we give title of previous book; this sentence is already too long, without adding the id has put together a highly personal collection of short anecdotes chronicling various funny, tragic and eye-opening scenessince the examples given are not all events of her life, from her Russian Jewish parents' fear of strangers to caring for a terminally ill friend to an afternoon at a garage sale in rural Virginia. Many of Moskowitz's stories touch on the isolation she has often felt as a Jew in a Christian society. Peppered with wry but compassionate observations on family life, her own motives and the human condition in general, her essays are touching but never sappy or self-indulgent. Moskowitz (Whoever Finds This: I Love You ) seems like the sort of warm and motherly--but tough and humorous--person you'd love to have as a sister or best friend. (Nov.)
