In 2003, a mild-mannered historian named Moses Lapinsky jots down notes for a biography. The biography is to be of his father Sonny, a famous Jewish-Canadian boxer. As Moses buries himself in research, he is transported back to the pivotal events in his father's life. In a novel crammed with humour, sorrow, folly, bravery and the richness of everyday life, Tulchinsky traces the remarkable fortunes of the Lapinsky family."Devastatingly effective." -Now magazine"A lovingly written, sweeping drama." -Toronto Star"Thoroughly credible. A good, solid, readable work." -Globe and Mail"Old fashioned in the very best sense: it's got lots of heart." -National Post
