The parts of this memoir that shine are the parts about his family and dealing with the cultural differences Gopnik and his wife and son experienced together. The chapters that he spent with his son on the carousel and in the Ritz swimming pool were priceless. However, at least one fourth of this book was so mind-numbing I couldn't read it. He should have skipped the political crap and used only the parts with his family in their small apartment with the kitchen down the long hall and lassoing the lights around his Christmas tree. There were seriously parts of this book that were brilliant and made me laugh out loud and retell stories to other people and others that made me want to put it down and never open it again in fear that I would instantly fall asleep.
