Jack Kamen has plenty to laugh about!
Read about it in
Heirloom Stories from the Harnessmaker's Son, tales your grandfather might have told you.
Jack Kamen was born in 1913 above his father's harness shop in Brownsville, a Yiddish-speaking section of Brooklyn. He brings that lost world to life in this humorous, heartwarming, historical collection of family stories with universal appeal.
Jack bares all as he reveals secrets of the Enchanted Outhouse, the Mysterious Yeshiva Fire, and the Great Thanksgiving Fraud.
Learn why Jack was in the Oval Office one month and jail the next ... why Uncle Youssel sold his soul ... and how Jack saved his hide when the Manhater's Club discovered him eavesdropping.
Jack's greatest secret--his formula for health, happiness, and longevity--is hidden in every story. It's his attitude, and it's contagious.
Pass it on.
But first...buy it.
