  1. These sound like great reads. I love great autobiographies particularly when they are about cultures or time periods I am not too familiar with. Lately I have been into historical fiction and just finished the Muralist by B.A. Shapiro set just before WWII when Jews were fleeing Europe. It definitely hit home with what is going on today in the U.S. relating to racism and immigration.
