Her devoted family only wants the best for their Bubbie. Mostly they want to ensure that their matriarch's twilight years are spent in comfort, safety, and serenity. But how do you manage an aging, immutably stubborn Holocaust survivor who has risen above the squalor of Poland's ghettos; fled across the war-torn German wilderness; and survived the winter-ravaged Pyrenees alone on foot with three children? You probably don't. Managing Bubbie is the heartrending, hilarious family memoir by Russel Lazega that recounts the frequently hectic, ever-exhausting trials of one Jewish family in Miami Beach as they try to oversee the care of the elderly, unmanageable Lea Lazega. As they scramble for an acceptable assisted living facility and struggle to get her medication in line, they discover the difficulties of controlling a woman who time and again eluded catastrophe by refusing to be told what to do. A tapestry of an American family in the 1980s, Managing Bubbie also revisits the Holocaust period to mine the love, hope, and humor that emerged from the deepest despair. Anyone who savors a soft heart with a sharp funny bone will laugh, cry, and commiserate with the confounded family who must manage their beloved, impossible Bubbie.… (mais)

I received a copy of Managing Bubbie from. Russel Lazega in exchange for an honest review.

Lazega wrote this memoir of his Bubbie, and her experiences as a Jewish woman. While reading it I felt like Bubbie was there telling me her life story, I got lost in the words so many times. It was not always a happy story but a well told and one that will stick with you. I'm so happy I had the chance to read it. Bubbie was my kind of woman, a kick ass individual! ( )

This story was so moving to me. I really enjoy reading books about an older person's life because there's so much that they experienced and learned from that just seems so amazing to me. This book was a really good read. ( )

Managing Bubbie is an excellent book. It explores the moving true-life story of the matriarch of a Jewish family who had survived the Holocaust. A wonderful and heart warming story to read. ( )

An interesting memoir, written by a grandson, relating tales of his "Bubbie" and her family ( including his infant father) and their experiences fleeing the Nazi machine as it spread it's terror across Europe in the early 1940s. Alternating with the historical chapters are vignettes of his Bubbie and her family today as they gather, celebrate, kvetch and otherwise live out their lives across four generations. The author calls his work "creative nonfiction" as it is based on fifty year old tales and memories of his grandmother and her generation. The book includes stories of danger, suffering, heartbreak and heroism, as well as a surprising amount of humor. It is a fine tribute to an amazing generation. ( )

A memoir about a Jewish grandmother surviving the Holocaust, alternatively set against what I can only imagine to be the present day, I find all sorts of compelling parallels. However, I must say that it was much easier to follow the train of the memoir rather than the present day text, as alignment and italics make it difficult to parse occasionally the difference between the thoughts of the author and speech.

However, it was quite well-written, and moving. I would certainly read another novel by this author. ( )
