Dobra Levitt has chosen 17 of the essays she wrote in a creative writing course to be read as a memoir of her childhood and early adult years. Though some of the essays are testimony to her love of teaching and literature, it is clearly the family influence and turning-point decisions of her life that are the heart and soul of this collection.
Everything flows from the source: the primary source her parental home as described in the title essay, “The Fish In The Yellow Paper”, and years later – call it her spiritual awakening – as described in “A Soul Comes Home On Chanukah”. “Always The Teacher”, as she writes in the preface, it is her ardent hope that this book will be a delight and inspiration for its readers, especially for students, former ones and those learning now in schools and universities, who will always have a place in her heart.
