This will be a short post as it has been a hectic 24 hours.
Our autobiographical essayist Charles Ticho passed away yesterday in his home. He was 95.
Gayle and I had the pleasure of publishing Mr. Ticho’s book, Stops Along the Way. It’s a Jewish child’s view of the Holocaust and follows his family while they rebuild their life in the United States and we get a peak of his career in film production.
To learn more about Mr. Ticho, I encourage you to read his obituary here.
Oddly enough, during the weekend I started reading a memoir of Jewish conversion, Since Sinai. Part of the reason I was drawn to Mr. Ticho’s story is because I am a history nerd. But the other reason is because while I know nothing but the basics about Judaism, I find myself perpetually drawn to it.
I wish Mr. Ticho’s family and friends solace at this time and I am proud to carry his book among the Parisian Phoenix titles.
