This is an auction for THE HOUSE OF TWENTY THOUSAND BOOKS by Sasha Abramsky. reviews:

"FIVE STARS! While I have been a fan of most of Mr. Abramsky's books (particularly those on poverty in modern America and the inequities of out broken criminal justice system), I was absolutely blown away by this book. It is beautifully written and takes the reader back to a time and place which exists nowhere but in the memories of people (like Mr. Abramsky) who were fortunate enough to know the wonderful characters who populate this work. If a novelist had attempted to create a character like Chaim Abramsky, no one would have believed he could have existed. I cannot recommend "The House of Twenty Thousand Books" strongly enough."

"FIVE STARS!! This is the highest rating I've ever given a book. I wish I had time to write a really nice review, but I don't, so I'll give some highlights. If you are a history buff, you'll like this book. If you like history that presents a perceptive look at a particular slice of humanity at a particular point in time, but with much historical background, you'll like it even more. If the slice of humanity consists of Jews, and especially Jewish intellectuals in the early to mid-20th Century, your pleasure will increase. (I am a WASP, so that is not special pleading). And if you like history centered on the life of a particularly engaging, important, and charismatic personality who was personally involved in important world events, portrayed in superb writing, you'll be overjoyed."
