A multi-generational memoir that tracks my Slovak family, whose story closely mirrors the 20th century history of Slovakia itself. Significant parts of the story are set in Scarsdale: not only his own upbringing there (careful readers will get a reference to former SJHS science teacher Nate Sloane's classroom), but also his mother's upbringing and his parents' wedding at St James the Less.
