Jew Boy: A Memoir by Alan Kaufman

Jew Boy tells the story of a child in the Bronx growing up in the complex shadow of his mother's survival of the Holocaust in Europe. Physically abused by a woman whose horrifying experiences have left her emotionally scarred, Alan Kaufman is forced to deal with the demons haunting his mother as he struggles uncomprehendingly with his Jewish identity. He escapes from his crazy home life to the school yard, only to find one kind of savagery exchanged for another. He experiences the first pangs of adolescent sexuality, undergoes the ritual of an American bar mitzvah, and re-creates himself as a mindless football fanatic on his high-school team, joining in its sadistic rituals and drills.
