If you can put down this book... well, it's not going to happen... Zavistovski... has lived a life so dangerous, thrilling, and unpredictable that he qualifies as a picaresque hero along the lines of Lazarillo de Tormes or Oliver Twist. 

— James M. Keller, author, program annotator for the New York Philharmonic, and former staff writer for The New Yorker 

Leshek Zavistovski's searing memoir is not just the testament of a young man's survival... it powerfully shows how Leshek transcended the extreme circumstances of his existence... a brilliantly crafted love story to the human spirit (his!). 

— Bruce C. McKenna, writer, Band of Brothers; Emmy-Award-winning creator, writer, executive producer, The Pacific

His is a path of tremendous, movie-worthy, epic struggle—interspersed with hilarious episodes throughout. I was agape from the beginning to the end of this book.

— Susan Graham, internationally-renowned opera star

Leshek Zavistovski has led a remarkable life and he writes about it vividly and passionately. His survival should be the stuff of legends.

— Jerry Adler, Senior Editor, Newsweek (retired)

Children & Fish Don't Talk is excellent and polished.

— Connie Martinson, writer, host of syndicated television show Connie Martinson Talks Books
