The author was born in 1920 in Bodsanov, a small town near Warsaw Poland, and describes in great detail the social and economic life during the 2nd World War in Europe and Central Asia. He writes... More > about the German occupation that brought a curfew and forced labor. Fleeing across the border to Russia resulted in being put on a train to Northern Siberia and working in a labor camp (Gulag) on very little food.

Because of German army advances, Polish Jews were told to leave. Fleeing once again, he traveled to Siberia to work on rail lines that had been bombed.

Prints in 3-5 business days
In 1950s Chicago, a boy hides in his closet to escape a father’s habitual rage. There he conjures up another paternal figure in his artistic Italian grandfather, Canio Grieco. With his wondrous... More > tricks and stories of “Italy,” his library and drawings, his baseball and opera, Canio becomes the model of creativity for the lonely, introverted grandson who learns to survive through ingenuity, imagination, and electricity. Canio’s Secret is a coming-of-age story about young Greg’s struggle to find solace in his mother’s Catholicism and break free of his father’s anger. Told through intimate portraits of parents and grandparents, nuns and janitors, friends and local characters, and their unsettling, often humorous, encounters, it is also the vibrant portrait of a multi-ethnic neighborhood soon to be scattered by white flight. As the older writer ponders his grandfather’s influence, the memoir becomes a meditation on Canio’s enigmatic advice, spoken in the summer of 1953: “Happiness is all that’s required.”< Less
