Get ready to laugh and cry at this collection of writings by Sam Hoffer, a born storyteller whose body of work ranges from Holocaust narratives to Yiddish comedy, memoir, poetry, short fiction, and non-fiction essays. Sam was born in 1945 and came to Canada at the age of seven with his parents, rejoining his brothers, Leizer and Joe, who had come to Canada after surviving the Holocaust. From his humble beginnings in rural Saskatchewan, Sam went on to be a husband and father who cherished family and friends and loved the written word. By turns moving and hilarious, this book collects his memories and dreams as revealed in his many poems and stories, all written From the Heart.
