The Gods Are Broken! : the Hidden Legacy of Abraham / Jeffrey K. Salkin, 157 pp.

A neat little explication of the story of the boy Abraham breaking the idols of his father, Terah, and the ways in which this is an emblematic Jewish story.  Surprisingly readable and even cheerful in tone, this is a sophisticated work and a fascinating read for anyone interested in how people and their stories are linked.
