    Monroe Price's Bildungsroman is lively and entertaining, its twist sometimes rivals that of a Michael Crichton crime novel, and its persuasiveness that of a New York Times editorial. The author was born in Vienna shortly after the Anschluss and was brought out in swaddling clothes to the United States, where he lived a more or less undisturbed life as a successful lawyer and scientist.

    Although he himself was neither a refugee nor a Holocaust survivor, he inherited his mother's devotion to Central European Jewry, and his "legal identity" is rooted in the empire of József Ferenc. He has no personal memories of the colorful personalities of his ancestors, for example Uncle Emil, who was a "well-known boy seller" in Vienna, yet he is able to bring them to life in his memoirs. As he traveled to Europe again and again to "search for the truths", he realized that memory not only invents, but also destroys. He writes that he feels more at home in the rice fields of Thailand than in Vienna. At the same time, thanks to a new law, he applied for Austrian citizenship in 1997, which he himself cannot really explain.
