CJ. Dylan Yates presents and signs The Belief in Angels

Book Soup LA

8818 W. Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, 60069

3:00pm

Growing up in her parents' crazy hippie household on a tiny island off the coast of Boston, Jules's imaginative sense of humor is the weapon she wields to dodge household chaos. But somewhere between routine discipline with horsewhips, gun-waving gambling debt collectors, and LSD-laced breakfast cereal adventures, tragedy strikes with the death of her younger brother--a blow from which Jules may never fully recover.

Jules' story alternates with that of her Grandfather Samuel, a man with a sad story of his own. Samuel, once called Szaja, is an orthodox Jew who lived through the murderous Ukranian pogroms of the 1920s and the Majdanek Death Camp--but whose survival came at a price that's haunted him for years.
