Overview

Joschi Molnar is an enigma: father, Holocaust survivor, wit, and fabulous liar. After his death his three surviving children are left with contrasting versions of his life, yet corresponding attitudes to their childhood: thirty years since Joschi Molnar died, his lasting legacy is one of confusion, unanswered questions, and irrevocable differences. On what would have been their father's 100th birthday, the Molnar children—along with Joschi's sixteen-year-old granddaughter, Lily—stage a reunion: but in a lively Italian restaurant, as they remember the man that none of them really knew, their shared history dissolves into tall tales, fights, confessions, and laughter.

Reviews

"Told brilliantly, it is amusing and tragi-comic." —Buchjournal
