Prom­ise ful­filled

The Jewish Chronicle - - LIFE -

Ian Bu­ruma’s lov­ing me­moir of his grand­par­ents — Bernard and Winifred (“Bun” and “Win”) — Their Promised Land, left the JC’s ad­mir­ing re­viewer Ju­lia Neu­berger “tear­ful with nos­tal­gia” and gar­nered praise gen­er­ally. Now avail­able in pa­per­back (At­lantic Books, £9.99), in its sen­si­tive use of his grand­par­ents’ let­ters writ­ten when they were sep­a­rated by war, it of­fers new read­ers a warm evo­ca­tion of English­ness and Jewish­ness.
