I appreciated the family memories and coming to terms with who his parents and family were from the adult perspective looking back. Many of us are dealing with that. Interesting that he was growing up in Memphis as such a pivotal time. Also a snapshot of the Southern Jewish experience.
Having made up an extra aunt and uncle does take away from the memoir a bit. Screening Room as title misleads too.
