Product description

From the Publisher

What I love about This Magnificent Dappled Sea is that it challenges how I define myself, asking me to consider how closely connected I am to everyone else. Now, when I sit on the bus or walk down a crowded street, I marvel at the fact that all these people who are seemingly strangers are actually joined to me in a vast network of connections—we are all related. That’s what the characters in this deeply moving novel discover when Luca, a young Italian Catholic boy, needs a marrow transplant. After an extensive search, his family is shocked to find that a rabbi in New York is his closest match. How can these two strangers of different heritage, living thousands of miles apart, possibly be related?

Author David Biro shows just how linked the two are—and he writes from experience. A physician himself, at age thirty-one David was diagnosed with a rare disease that required a bone marrow transplant. His experience brought to light how intertwined we all are—and not just genetically. As we see in Luca’s story, decisions made in a split second can also have lasting repercussions for generations to come.

- Jodi Warshaw, Editor
