WHEREVER YOU GO, THERE THEY ARE

Stories About My Family You Might Relate To

by Gurwitch, Annabelle

Written with haunting detail, poignant family moments, laugh out loud comedy and social commentary, Gurwitch delivers a provocative treatise on the importance and insanity of family.WHEREVER YOU GO, THERE THEY ARE is a must-read for anyone who's even occasionally been frustrated by the people they share carbohydrate-laden meals with every year.

With her wry wit and hard-learned wisdom, Annabelle Gurwitch explores the inescapable, yet rewarding, realities of life with her relatives and her southern Jewish roots, as well as her flirtation with surrogate families including theater folk, pet people, the sisterhood, and the ladies who brunch at Tel Aviv Gardens Retirement Home in Miami, Florida. She's learned that for better or for worse (you can guess which) it's worth celebrating the traditions, rituals, and recipes that come with a shared mythology and legacy, even if her own inheritance amounts to a small plot of land split between five relatives on an ill-fated sliver of sand known as Massacre Island. Written with haunting detail, poignant family moments, laugh out loud comedy and social commentary, Gurwitch delivers a provocative treatise on the importance and insanity of family.WHEREVER YOU GO, THERE THEY ARE is a must-read for anyone who's even occasionally been frustrated by the people they share carbohydrate-laden meals with every year.

Like Roz Chast and Nora Epron, Gurwitch’s writing is sharp, funny, and emphatic.
