Reviewed by Asher Syed for Readers' Favorite

Moe Fields: The Special Bond Between Fathers and Sons by Stuart Z Goldstein is a memoir chronicling the life of Murray “Moe Fields” Goldman during the Great Depression, his career as a boxer and plumbing business owner, and his enduring love story with Frannie Goldman. A tragic car accident caused by a drunk driver left both Moe and Frannie with lifelong disabilities, profoundly impacting their unsupervised sons. Nevertheless, Moe and Frannie instilled in their sons the values of hard work, perseverance, and love, inspiring them to succeed in their careers and become devoted fathers. The book celebrates the strength of family bonds, prevailing over adversity, as the Goldman family exemplifies resilience, sacrifice, and determination in facing life's difficulties with quiet grace and resolve.

“The bootleg boxing career and Murray’s love life continued with great adventures.” This pretty much encapsulates the trajectory of the life of Murray or at least what catapults him into everything to come in Moe Fields: The Special Bond Between Fathers and Sons by Stuart Z Goldstein. I loved the setting against the backdrop of one of the most transformative periods in American history. Murray meeting Frannie and her support of his career is essential to his success, as he was ready to throw in the towel, sometimes literally on a massage table before her, but she insisted he continued. It's interesting how long after it is Alan who shows us what that might have looked like, losing oneself after sporting success but not having a true partner to keep them pressing forward. It's a different time and Alan is a different person than his father, but this did have a full-circle feel. Overall, this is a really heartening memoir and while I understand it took the author some time to write, it is worth the wait for readers in the end. Very highly recommended.
