Creative non-fiction memoir on growing up in Toronto with the influence of the '60s pop culture and the trauma of her parents' experiences in the Holocaust. Interspersed throughout this volume is an account of those Holocaust experiences.
" 'Peril' Goodman gives a meticulous, humour-tinged account of growing up in mid-20th century whitebread Toronto, the child of heroic survivors. Peril captures Torontonia--Eaton's delivery trucks, The Ports of Call, Sam the Record Man, the Liquor CONTROL Board with no bottles on display--and traces the clash between wary parents and a girl who, like the provincial town itself, is seeking her own identity." Sheila Gostick Toronto-based writer and performer
