Mothers' Hall of Fame (Softcover)
interviewed 25 mothers of Jewish people, including Clara Sussman, mother of
Rosalyn Yalow, a Nobel Medalist in medicine. Like other mothers in the book,
Clara, who died recently, exemplified a life of hard work and sacrifice, as well
as worry about her child when a teacher told her Rosalyn was a genius. ("I
never met the man Einstein but I heard he was a little peculiar.") The
author says Leah Adler, mother of film director Steven Spielberg, was the
funniest person he'd ever met, and readers will agree. With obvious love and
pride, she kvetches about bringing up a peculiar son ("I didn't know what
the hell he was"). There are reports on rock stars, a lawyer, playwright
and other achievers and at least two people more notorious than famous: porn
film star Harry Reems and yippee ex-convict Abbie Hoffman. First serial to
People and Interview.
