My favorite literary reviewer , that is Berger and john Leonard are dead and James wood is too cold blooded , so Mendelsohn it is.
This memoir of author and his old father in their last times together, Daniel teaching class on odyssey, dad taking class, then dad and son going on an educational odyssey cruise, then dad suddenly dying. And the overarching story of homer and what it means to be a human and how we tells ourselves we are so.
