Description

20th Anniversary Edition! Shortlisted for both the Stephen Leacock Memorial Medal for Humour and the Books in Canada Best First Novel Award, The Salvation of Yasch Siemens is an outrageous, comic ride through a community as memorable as any in Canadian literature.“Armin Wiebe does for Gutenthal, a composite village drawn from the Mennonite farming communities of Southern Manitoba, what Stephen Leacock did for Mariposa and its inhabitants. The results are similarly uproarious and touching, side-splittingly anarchic and wistful. Wiebe’s writing is utterly endearing, genuinely funny... Do not miss it.”—Patrick Dunn, Canadian Mennonite
