Morley Safer said of this book "David Hays proves once again his talents as a writer and chronicler of the human condition. " When David Hays was sixty-six and joined a synagogue for the first time in over fifty years, he decided to study Hebrew and become a bar mitzvah. And so this father of two grown children borrowed his grandson's Hebrew primer and joined a class of twelve-year-olds. Thus was launched a wondrous journey of faith and community. In Today I Am a Boy, Hays' new world begins to intersect with his own history as he grapples with his mother's death and watches his grandchilden awaken to life's wonders. At a time when most of us begin to slow down, the ardent boy in this eminent man has been reawakened. Today I Am a Boy is a brave, clear-eyed, and joyous examination of life. 255 pages. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
