10 Summer Book Recommendations for Tax Attorneys
Tax attorneys Joshua Odintz and Abbey Garber were featured in a Law360 article sharing lawyers' favorite summertime reads.
Mr. Odintz recommended The Sellout by Paul Beatty, a satirical book narrating the story of an young man who grew up on the outskirts of Los Angeles. The book focuses on the relationship between the narrator and his father and offers commentary on the civil rights movement, urban life and father-son relationship.
"This novel is a perfect way to explore race and racism in America," he said. "You will laugh out loud, and cry as well."
Mr. Garber recommended The Upstander: How Surviving the Holocaust Sparked Max Glauben's Mission to Dismantle Hate by Jori Epstein, a biography of Holocaust survivor Max Glauben. The book looks at Glauben's time in six different concentration camps as well as discusses how he turned his years of suffering into a mission to end hate and right wrongs. Mr. Garber said he recommended the book because of its focus on humanity.
"The book is heartbreaking and heartwarming as it traces Max's life and tales of survival in the Warsaw Ghetto, in the Nazi camps and in America, where he came with nothing and built a new life," he explained. "There are lessons for all of us on how to respond to incredible hardship and the impact that one life can have on so many others."
