Daniel Mendelsohn recalls the deceptively quiet suburb where he grew up, torn between his mathematician father's pursuit of scientific truth and the exquisite lies spun by his Orthodox Jewish grandfather: the streets of manhattan's newest 'gay ghetto,' where 'desire for love' competes with 'love of desire:' and the quiet moonlit house where a close friend's small son teaches him the meaning of fatherhood.And, finally, in a neglected Jewish cemetery, the author uncovers afamily secret that reveals the universal need for storytelling, for inventing myths of the self.The book that Hilton Als calls 'equal to Whitman's 'Song of Myself, '' The Elusive Embrace marks a dazzling literary debut.'
