MICHAEL FRANK reads from his memoir, The Mighty Franks

Brookline Booksmith hosts essayist, critic and author MICHAEL FRANK presenting his family memoir, The Might Franks, which the New York Times calls “probing and radiantly polished.”

About The Mighty Franks:

Talented, sparkling, and lavish with both money and love, Auntie Hankie teaches young Michael which books to read, which painters to admire, and which people to adore— but beneath her charm lies a dangerous rage. This true Hollywood tale of an eccentric Jewish household tests where the boundaries of family life should be drawn, and who should draw them.
