The Net of Dreams: A Family's Search for a Rightful Place

'“Beneath [Salamon’s] girlhood’s ‘Norman Rockwell trappings’ lay the tragic past her parents hid from her, a past she painstakingly reconstructs in this deeply affecting memoir.” —Publishers Weekly                                                                                                                                   “Salamon’s memoir for and of her parents is honest, true, deeply touching.” —Judith Dunford“This is a compelling story of discovery. On one level it is the author’s discovery of her parents’ past, but on a deeper level it is the story of a child of survivors learning that she cannot get on with her life until she has come to terms with what is not only her parents’ story but also her own.” —The Washington Post“Salamon offers an excellent account of seeing the Holocaust through her parents’ experiences, perceptively illustrating how it affected her own life.” —Library Journal“Written with compassion and understanding, this is an impressive and moving memoir.” —Booklist“This moving, intimate and often funny memoir demonstrates how the stories we must make up to survive can bring us to the actual truth, after all.” —Salon“A haunting journey of discovery that begins on the set of Schindler’s List, travels through the Carpathian mountains, Birkenau, Prague, and New York, and ends, surprisingly, in a tiny southern Ohio town. One of the best of the ‘roots’ books . . . Very well written and enormously affecting.” —Joan Micklin Silver, director of Hester Street'
