I enjoyed this book, I read the first one a long time ago back in High School and liked that one just as much if not more. This one focuses on Art dealing with his aging father whose second wife had left him and his health is ailing. Dealing with his father problems he gains insight into the character of his father that was shaped because of his experience in the concentration camp. His father tells Art how he managed to keep in contact with his mother in a neighboring concentrations camp, his experiences in the camp and at the end of the war, finding his wife and starting his life again, thought many of the acts he did to save himself seem very smart he would always insist he was just lucky.
