My Father's Compass

Author(s): Howard Goldenberg

Auto/Biography

Howard Goldenberg uses his magical story-telling skills in 'My Father's Compass' to record and celebrate the long and fruitful life of a man with many roles: healing the sick, growing olives, sailing the seas, harvesting foreskins, serving synagogues and raising his brood of difficult children. Myer, Howard's father, was a rare combination of dinkum Aussie and devout Jew. This memoir - poignant, entertaining and at times hilarious - will evoke tears and laughter, grief and joy. A book to be treasured. 'Howard Goldenberg writes with verve and humour. He also writes with deep compassion. It is this unusual marriage of qualities which makes a rare and valuable witness to our times'
