New York Times Notable Book and winner of Ohioana Book Award 1997
Called “a haunting journey of discovery” by Joan Micklin Silver, director of Hester Street. This memoir begins on the set of Schindler’s List, travels through the Carpathian mountains, Auschwitz., Prague, and New York, and ends, surprisingly, in a tiny southern Ohio town.
“…Salamon’s struggle for memory is an evocative theme. Her distinctly American book, The Net of Dreams, is a family memoir, but the family it speaks to should be vast.” —David Remnick, editor of the New Yorker
“This moving, intimate and often funny memoir demonstrates how the stories we must make up to survive can bring us to the actual truth, after all.” —Salon
“Salamon offers an excellent account of seeing the Holocaust through her parents’ experiences, perceptively illustrating how it affected her own life.” —Library Journal
