Family Politics

That his pain is being ignored because of his politics is a theme in the very few notices of David Horowitz's book, A Cracking of the Heart. Horowitz is the one-time lefty who migrated to life under the neo-con banner. That trip followed a break with his father and years later sealed a break with his daughter.

It is his daughter, Sarah, and her death at 44 from the congenital Turner Sydrome that is the spark for this father's memoir of how extraordinary his child was, including the questions of what he lost by being who he was.
