Escape from Mount Moriah

(2000)
Memoirs of a Refugee Child's Triumph
A non fiction book by

 
All the short stories within this memoir illuminate and pack a wallop. They sparkle and shine in Engelhard's unique minimalist style...prose that is lean, reserved and economical...if there is one word to describe Engelhard's writing, it would be CHARM. What a gift to those of us who understand the trials and triumphs of growing up. Escape from Mount Moriah...among the greatest memoirs ever.

Torn from their homes in France at the onset of the Nazi invasion, and after a harrowing escape across the Pyrenees, the Engelhard family -- Noah, Ida, Sarah and Jack -- must begin lives as refugees in a new world -- first Canada (Montreal), later the United States. The experiences that shaped young Jack Engelhard were those that profoundly changed the world. Famous as the foremost chronicler of moral dilemmas and of topics dealing with temptation, Engelhard, often likened to Hemingway and James M. Cain for precision, helps us understand that life itself is the process of learning who you are.
