He publishes that memoir, Skylock, to great acclaim, and its success takes him on the road and out of Eli's life. With his uncle gone, Eli throws himself into reading his opus and becomes fixated on all things Poxl. But as he delves deeper into Poxl's history, Eli begins to see that the life of the fearless superman he's adored has been much darker than he let on and filled with unimaginable loss from which he may have not recovered. As the truth about Poxl emerges, it forces Eli to face irreconcilable facts about the war he's romanticized and the vision of the man he's held so dear.
The Last Flight of Poxl West beautifully weaves together the two unforgettable voices of Eli Goldstein and Poxl West, exploring what it really means to be a hero, and to be a family, in the long shadow of war.

Weird European accent for 75% of book
American English was fine but when book switched characters to Eastern European Jewish he went into this weird half Irish half something else accent, made me cringe

Fasincinating WW II story told from a different point of view
After you get past the author's over-exuberant verbosity, the story carries you along. Would have been better if shorter with less redundancy & the parts written from the teen/young adult voice were shortened more than the uncle's part. A more age appropriate in vocabulary/dialect from the nephew would improve the listening experience too.
