Matzo Balls for Breakfast and Other Memories of Growing Up Jewish

by Alan King

Alan King — the beloved comic, actor, producer, author, philanthropist, and storyteller extraordinaire — has compiled a wonderfully readable book about growing up Jewish, with totally original contributions by famous people.

Combining warmhearted humor with a prideful nostalgia, these essays discuss life in the Jewish family and neighborhood, being a Jew in a non-Jewish world, Jewish holidays, and discovering the essence of being Jewish.
