Publisher's Summary

A multi-cast audio book featuring Tony and Golden Globe winner Linda Lavin, The Love Boat's Gavin Macleod, Tony and Emmy nominated Lainie Kazan, The Nanny's Renée Taylor, Grammy nominated Judy Tenuta and many more. 
Her devoted family only wants the best for their Bubbie. Mostly they want to ensure that their matriarch's twilight years are spent in comfort, safety, and serenity. But how do you manage an aging, immutably stubborn Holocaust survivor who has risen above the squalor of Poland's ghettos; fled across the war-torn German wilderness; and survived the winter-ravaged Pyrenees alone on foot with three children? You probably don't. 
Managing Bubbie is the heartrending, hilarious family memoir by Russel Lazega that recounts the frequently hectic, ever-exhausting trials of one Jewish family in Miami Beach as they try to oversee the care of the elderly, unmanageable Lea Lazega. As they scramble for an acceptable assisted living facility and struggle to get her medication in line, they discover the difficulties of controlling a woman who time and again eluded catastrophe by refusing to be told what to do. 
A tapestry of an American family in the 1980s, Managing Bubbie also revisits the Holocaust period to mine the love, hope, and humor that emerged from the deepest despair. Anyone who savors a soft heart with a sharp funny bone will laugh, cry, and commiserate with the confounded family who must manage their beloved, impossible Bubbie.

A story of grit, character and determination - lessons that stand the test of time.

A wonderful book. In an age when selflessness seems almost lost, this story reminds us of true courage and how the human character can survive great tragedy, overcome inner conflict and flourish again against the greatest of odds.

A must read for this generation.
