“Daniel Torday’s The Last Flight of Poxl West is a cleverly nested meta-novel. A grown man describes his boyhood experience of reading his dashing uncle’s memoir — a book within the book about being a Jewish RAF bomber pilot during World War II. Toward the end of the novel, Uncle Poxl tells Eli, ‘That is the very crux of telling a story: to tell it better,’ and Torday understands this, using crisply beautiful prose to move us along a narrative that is wry and heartbreaking.”
