Editorial Reviews

Review

"A deeply affecting story...[Dubner's] engrossing book will interest not only serious Jews and Catholics, but all whose lives have been torn by interfamilial religious schisms".

-- Kirkus Reviews

"Intense, acutely observed. A story that is at once enlightening and baffling. While it is clearly better for Stephen Dubner if his turbulent stays quiet, I think readers of this wonderful book will rather hope that a continual measure of unsettlement inspires him to write more.""-- The New York Times Book Review""In addition to being deeply moved by "Turbulent Souls, " I am full of admiration for Stephen J. Dubner's honesty, the complexity of his intelligence, his commitment to understanding his parent's history, and his refusal to oversimplify."-- Mary Gordon, author of" The Shadow Man"

From the Back Cover

Turbulent Souls is a luminous memoir, crafted with the eye of a journalist and the art of a novelist by New York Times Magazine writer and editor Stephen J. Dubner. By turns comic and heartbreaking, it tells the story of a family torn apart by religion, sustained by faith, and reunited by truth.

Format: Paperback
Interesting story. The first part of the book can be a little confusing as the author switches back between his mother's family and his father's family. Not to mention some of the characters change their names mid-way through the book. But all in all, if you're interested in religion, religious choices, or family dynamics, you'll enjoy this well-written book.
