Today Gidon and I were so incredibly touched and honored to receive this wonderful review of our manuscript from our friend and my writing mentor, Yossi Klein Halevi, author of the critically renowned Like Dreamers and Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor:
Just when you thought there was nothing new that could possibly be said about the Holocaust, along come Gidon Lev and Julie Gray with this delightful, moving, original and yes charming account of an extraordinary man who happens to have been a child survivor of the Theresienstadt concentration camp. With irreverent humor and deep insight, “The True Adventures of Gidon Lev” presents an improbable love story -- of a man who had every reason to be bitter but instead fell in love with life. It is also the story of a late-life romance that will make you believe in happy-ever-after endings again. Read this wonderful book and you’ll fall in love too – with Gidon, with Julie, with the Jewish people and the nation they created out of the abyss.
