Summary
"Flying couch tells the stories of three unforgettable women. Amy Kurzwil weaves her own coming-of-age as a young Jewish artist into the narrative of her mother, a psychologist, and Bubbe, her grandmother, a World War II survivor who escaped from the Warsaw Ghetto by disguising herself as a gentile. The voices and histories of these wise, hilarious, and very different women create a protrait not only of what it means to be part of a family, but also of how each generation bears the imprint of the past."
