Summary:
"Elinor's comfortable life --popular newspaper column, stable marriage, well-adjusted kids --is totally upended when she finds out that her estranged uncle is coming to Jerusalem to give a speech asking forgiveness for his decades-old book, Hitler, First Person. A shocking novel that galvanized the Jewish diaspora. Hitler, First Person, was Aaron Gotthilf's attempt to understand --and explain --what it would have been like to be Hitler. As if that isn't disturbing enough, while writing this controversial novel, Gotthilf stayed in Elinor's parent's house and sexually assaulted her "slow" sister." -- P. [4] of cover.
