Memories of My Father by Andrew Levy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Levy's book beautifully regards the indispensability and impossibility of memory. He addresses the difficult truth of the shadow of the Thrid Reich cast by our owned armed silhouette. Amidst the amnesia and myopia of our postmodern condition, the lapel-star of David (emblazoned handsomely on the book's cover) cannot be forgotten. If the author must die, his father's trauma, his father's ghost must not. "Till the foul crimes done in my days of nature / Are burnt and purged away." In order for justice to exist, the trace must conquer death. "Memories of My Father" is a partisan in that peaceful struggle.
