The adventures of 'Tom Sawyer' with an ironic, Yiddish twist."

WINNER -- 2001 MPA -- "Excellence In Independent Publishing" Award.

OFFICIAL Selection CANNES Film Festival 2011 for this memoir's first short story, My Father, Joe...filmed by Nikila Cole.

The adventurous, humorous, sometimes wonderfully strange exploits of a youth during his family's adjustment to a new world, these compelling boyhood memories are of an almost Tom Sawyer character, albeit with ironic Yiddish twist.

"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, I'd choose CHARM. What a gift to those of us who understand the trials and triumphs of growing up. Escape From Mount Moriah... the finest, perhaps the greatest memoir I have ever read." Reviewer S. Dite
