Note: 
This novel about an abusive father - son relationship won a Sydney Taylor Book Award and it remains an exceptionally powerful story. Eddie can do nothing to please his father, who loves the children he teaches diligently but treats his own family with coldness and, in Eddie's case, outright cruelty. Set among immigrant Jews in London and then in New York, Our Eddie gives an exceptionally nuanced picture of family dynamics and arouses readers' sympathy, outrage, and compassion.
