FINALIST FOR THE NATIONAL JEWISH BOOK AWARD

"[Miller's] character portraits are indelible, often heartbreaking. At times this novel moved me to tears, the highest possible compliment."

??New York Times Book Review


With the wit and scope of Michael Chabon's The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, Derek B. Miller tackles his most ambitious epic yet. At its heart is the return of Sheldon Horowitz, the protagonist from Miller's award-winning first novel, Norwegian by Night, who was lauded by Pulitzer Prize??winning author Richard Russo as "one of the most memorable characters . . . that I've encountered in years."


MEET SHELDON IN THE MORNING OF HIS LIFE


Twelve-year old Sheldon Horowitz is still recovering from the tragic loss of his mother only a year ago when a suspicious traffic accident steals the life of his father near their home in rural Massachusetts. It is 1938, and Sheldon, who was in the truck, emerges from the crash an orphan hell-bent on revenge. He takes that fire with him to Hartford, where he embarks on a new life under the roof of his buttoned-up Uncle Nate. Sheldon, his teenage cousins Abe and Mirabelle, and his best friend, Lenny, will contend with tradition and orthodoxy, appeasement and patriotism, mafia hitmen and angry accordion players, all while World War II takes center stage alongside a hurricane in New England and comedians in the Catskills. With his eye always on vengeance for his father's murder, Sheldon stakes out his place in a world he now understands is comprised largely of crimes: right and wrong, big and small.


"For me??as I'm certain it will be for every reader of the wonderful Norwegian By Night??Derek B. Miller's new novel is a genuine literary event (Sheldon Horowitz is back!). Miller has long deserved to be a household name. How to Find Your Way in the Dark should finally make him one."

This is a madcap and heart-warming tale about a boy growing up in the years before the US entered WWII. Left orphaned after his father's murder, Sheldon swears he will kill the man who ran them off the road. This novel is similar in tone to Fredrick Backman's novels and is a prequel to the author's earlier novel, Norwegian by Night. While the story was more than a little far-fetched, the love that the author has for his characters is undeniable and the book managed to balance some heavy subject matter with humor and whimsy. I'm not really the reader of this kind of book, it was the choice of my book club, but I did enjoy reading it. ( )

How to Find Your Way in the Dark: 1 (A Sheldon Horowitz novel). Derek B. Miller. 2021. Jim would have loved this book! Twelve year old Sheldon is riding with his father when a car plows into them and kills his father. Sheldon sees the driver and is hell bent on finding the murderer. Sheldon moves in with his uncle and cousins, finishes high school and works at a hotel in the Catskills, meets up with Mafia thugs, deals with discrimination and learns along the way that the world is full of good and bad people. Miller has the amazing ability to make you cry one minute and laugh the next. He provides a vivid description of what it is like to be a Jewish teenager in pre WWII America. ( )

Curiously intense.

I have not read "Norwegian by Night" and maybe that is why I found Sheldon to be an unlikely obsessive focused on revenge. My response to the book is a bit ambiguous. I think you will like it, but don't try it unless you like very intense writing that requires you to take as given the reality painted of Massachusetts and Connecticut. Maybe you should try "Norwegian by Night" first.

I received a digital review copy of "How to Find Your Way in the Dark: Sheldon Horowitz 2" by Derek B. Miller from Mariner through NetGalley.com. ( )

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was unexpected and entertaining, yet the deeper meaning and story was thought provoking and educational. ( )

In 1938, twelve-year old Sheldon Horowitz is still recovering from the tragic loss of his mother only a year ago when a suspicious traffic accident steals the life of his father near their home in rural Massachusetts. He emerges from the crash an orphan hell-bent on revenge. A terrific coming-of-age story that follows its characters through a decade of fascinating history.
