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.
"These stories will have you laughing out loud...Highly recommended as a gift for elders, teachers (any grade), anyone interested in history or families, your children, or for yourself!" - Dr. Kathleen E. Kain, Ph.D., Columbia, SC (firstname.lastname@example.org)
