A Montreal Media Icon Tommy Schnurmacher
Tommy Schnurmacher has written a book that could change your life. It changed his. As a writer, Montreal media icon Schnurmacher is an intense force of nature, a seismic swell of visceral empathy, laser-sharp wit and courageous self-analysis. Now meet Olga. Auschwitz prisoner A-25057, aka Mom. A fearless, dramatic and unpredictable maverick. An original.

Exposing the souls of a family, Make-up Tips from Auschwitz is an addictive page-turner. The authors voice resonates with an unsettling candour reminiscent of David Sedaris. Like the Oscar-winning film, Life is Beautiful, Schnurmacher revisits the Holocaust with rays of light in the darkness. Sparkling with chutzpah and charm, this is a story of a familys cultural collision and delightful dysfunction where these newcomers from Hungary defy authority.

You will laugh out loud as you meet a cast of supporting characters who redefine eccentric: the 50-minute therapist, the psychic rabbi and a superstitious hypochondriac named Paris. Once you meet them, you will want to organize an intervention. Or at least a Passover Seder.

TOMMY SCHNURMACHER is a Montreal media icon, an award-winning broadcaster who was born in Budapest to parents who were Holocaust survivors. Over a 43-year period, he has been a film, TV and restaurant critic, a gossip columnist, a high-society reporter, a political pundit, a talk-radio host and even a psychic.
