Memento Park by Mark Sarvas

When a Hollywood character actor gets a call about a painting allegedly looted from his family by Nazis in 1944 Budapest, his life is thrown into personal, professional, and spiritual turmoil. Of the many questions asked—about family and identity, art and history—a central, unanswerable predicament lingers: How do we move forward when the past looms unreasonably large?

Book discussions are facilitated by Jim Van Buskirk. Pick up a copy of the book at the Library’s main branch or at a Pushcart branch at the Palo Alto or San Francisco JCC.
