“Like the radio actors he grew up listening to, especially his own father, Tony Mohr’s voice and words evoke a world. I know that Angelenos will find that world compelling, but I did too. I especially appreciate the child’s-level gaze at Hollywood and Beverly Hills during the years of the Red Scare and Joe McCarthy. But the memoir transcends its decades to speak universally to young people everywhere working to belong to a family and a place. Mohr’s lifelong dedication to both inform this work.”
