Unrau describes the story this way: “The results of a DNA test jangle Ben’s self-identity. On a crooked trail back through his family history, Ben uncovers a Jewish infant mysteriously left on a Mennonite doorstep in the violent Ukraine nearly eighty years before he was born. From Canada to Russian to Jerusalem, Ben searches and finds more than just his identity.”
Danny Unrau is the author of the short vignettes Saints, Sinners & Angels and Rogues, Rascals & Rare Gems. You Are the Boy is his first novel. Unrau has a BA in sociology, English and religious studies, an MA in Jewish studies, and a Doctorate.
