Sherwin Nuland: Lost in America

(Memoir, 259 pp. 1981)

The author, a Bronx-born physician and noted writer, probes his tortured relationship with his Yiddish-speaking immigrant father. In recreating the tense environment of his childhood, his father’s dark moods and increasing debilitation, Nuland charts his ultimately successful struggle to live in a larger and more fulfilling world.
