    Joan Mitchell

    A memoir of how a young woman sought healing from an abusive family which mirrored her mother's experience in a Nazi concentration camp. She used many alternative healing practices to defeat and release the physical pain that physically and emotionally paralyzed her. I recommend this book to those who have suffered trauma or have a dysfunctional family. I received this book from Goodreads for free.

    Beverly Hills Concentration Camp Reviewed by Michael Jaye Randi Maggid's debut novel is a searching and searing book with one bang-up title. It's the story how sensitive young Alix Resnick rises above (and beyond) a miserably harrowing childhood in the city that invented pampering. Surrounded by the rich and famous, Alix's has problems that few could survive. Luckily she comes from strong stock. Both her parents were concentration camp survivors. After the war, they meet, marry and move to Calif Beverly Hills Concentration Camp Reviewed by Michael Jaye Randi Maggid's debut novel is a searching and searing book with one bang-up title. It's the story how sensitive young Alix Resnick rises above (and beyond) a miserably harrowing childhood in the city that invented pampering. Surrounded by the rich and famous, Alix's has problems that few could survive. Luckily she comes from strong stock. Both her parents were concentration camp survivors. After the war, they meet, marry and move to California to start a golden life. However when the father dies, Mrs. Resnick, the young mother whose golden haired good looks charmed even Mengele, must raise her 3 kids alone in Beverly Hills. One is Alix, a sweet, sensitive and talented girl. Her two brothers are not so lucky, cursed with severe personality disorders that render them certifiably nuts. Alix is physically tormented by her brothers, and abused psychologically by an over-protective mother who favors her boys over everything. Ever resourceful, Alix scrounges for scraps of love and role models when and where she can, and here lies the book's problem It's almost two books. It's a book about pain, and it's a book about healing. Alas, like conjoined twins, while these stories run parallel to each other, they somehow never seem to connect. And the trouble is that much like Becky Sharp in Thackeray's Vanity Fair, Maggid's villains are much more vivid than her good guys. At its best, BHCC is a tale of a sensitive soul doggedly working to free herself from the debilitating pain that her dysfunctional family has inflicted on her. But at its not so best, it devolves into overly detailed laundry lists of New Age modalities that Alix samples as she struggles to rid herself of physical, spiritual, and emotional torments that would have demolished someone with less determination to survive. Some of Maggid's writing can be lean, mean, and downright insightful. And when she writes in her mother's thick Polish Yiddish accented English, she can be as funny as a female Phillip Roth. But sometimes she forgets that less is more in a roman à clef. And when she describes her New Age Odyssey, it's done with less poetry, tending towards pedestrian descriptions of cures that lack resonance for all but the most committed reader. Yet at the end of the day, the grotesque, terrifying and emotionally charged parts of Beverly Hills Concentration Camp are so vivid that we find ourselves looking forward to Maggid's next novel, hopefully under the scrutiny of a more exacting editor.
