Publisher's Summary

During the first 17 years of his life, spent in Shanghai, Sam experienced wars, changing regimes, different currencies, and a variety of schools that reflected the evolving political landscape. In a world obsessed with conflicting nationalism, his family survived as stateless residents, neither subject to, nor the responsibility of, any country. They were instead, sustained by their Russian Jewish culture and community. Through Sam's memories of early life and his love of history, we learn of Shanghai's uniqueness as a home and haven to thousands of Jews over many centuries.

Life of a Jewish boy in 20th century Shanghai.

I really enjoyed listening to this story of Sam's life, and i would recommend it to anyone interested in learning about Shanghai or the lives of Jews in Shanghai in the 20th century. It touches on many different aspects of not just his life as a young Jewish boy in a turbulent Shanghai, but the city itself and global events that revolved around it. Being the author himself, Sam speaks the recording from his heart and it adds a warmness and integrity that makes it such an enjoyable listen.
