Community Read: The book that binds

***National Jewish Book Awards 2012, Finalist***
     JJ Greenberg Memorial Award for Fiction
Editors' Choice Book by The New York Times and The Chicago Tribune

Fourth of July, 2005. The Frankel family gathers to memorialize their son, a journalist, killed while working in Iraq (reminiscent of Daniel Pearl's 2002 murder). Each family member tries to find his/her place, while understanding Leo's death has changed the family forever. An expert at capturing the intricate nuances of family relationships, Henkin skillfully leads us through his characters' emotional worlds. An award winning author "with distinguished gifts," Henkin directs the MFA program in Fiction Writing at Brooklyn College. "[P]owerful and unexpected . . . compassionate and beguiling." Jane Ciabattari, NPR Books
