I was born in liberated Rome to a Viennese mother and Italian father, lived in Argentina with my mother and new German step-father, and grew up in New York in a neighborhood of Holocaust survivors and fellow Europeans displaced by war.  I absorbed their memories of betrayals and courage, of sacrifice and difficult decisions, of strangers’ kindnesses and sheer luck. I understood that their gratitude for having found safety in America was tinged by longing for the lives they’d been forced to give up. The shadows of all they’d lost lingered, and drifted down to their children and grandchildren — and me. It is what inspired me to write ALL THAT LINGERS.
