Anastasia tells the story of Mr. Alite as if one is sitting with him sipping espresso in a South Jersey diner, for the love of God!! Mr. Alite is presented as highly likeable and I was rooting for him throughout the entire book. He's had a very, very full life and I think he would write a fine book himself. He's a survivor and I trust that he's living a quiet life full of reflection now. He seems like one of the most courageous fellows on the planet.
