A Book of Great Worth is a lovely book about a father's life told through the son's memories of the stories told by his father. The narrator shares his father's experiences from before the son was born and includes his childhood evoking the time and place through his father's voice. The son also conveys a deep love and respect for his father and this makes the book an extraordinary read.
The book is dedicated to the author's father, a book about one storyteller told by another.

A solid collection of short stories about the life of a Jewish newspaper reporter & his family. Although the writing felt a bit contrived to me at times, the characters are entirely credible, compelling and memorable. Dave Margoshes is a streetwise storyteller.
