Brothers Emanuel: A Memoir of an American Family

Brothers Emanuel book coverDonna S. of Fiction/AV/Teen Services recommends Brothers Emanuel: A Memoir of an American Family by Ezekiel J. Emanuel:

You may know the name, Rahm Emanuel. He worked on the campaign to elect President Bill Clinton, was Chief of Staff for President Barack Obama, and is currently the mayor of Chicago – but he is not the only talented Emanuel. Ari is the Hollywood super-agent who inspired the character Ari Gold on Entourage and Ezekiel is one of the world’s leading bioethicists and oncologists. Brothers Emanuel tells the stories of three rambunctious, overachieving brothers growing up Jewish in Chicago during the ‘60s and ‘70s with a civil rights activist mother and an immigrant physician father. It is also an examination of how three such extraordinary go-getters could develop out of a family of modest beginnings.
