Memoir



"Morley Torgov is a brilliant writer -- ironic, sad, funny; his stories come out of that powerful mixture of ancient Jewish tradition and New World experience that has produced some of this country's best literature."

A GOOD PLACE TO COME FROM

Morley Torgov's memoir portrays the rich diversity of life in a small northern Canadian town in the 1930s and 1940s. And underlying it, the funny, heartbreaking account of a father and son who never quite understood each other, but did understand something more important -- love and remembrance.
