    Poignant and Real

    On a Friday afternoon, Sammy and his son Jake both experience life-changing events within an hour of each other. They spend the rest of the day and the weekend regrouping. They promise each other to answer questions they’ve avoided answering before – and even to answer questions they had avoided asking each other before. They take a ‘road trip’ by city bus to Sammy’s old neighbourhood and because Jake desperately wants to know more about his roots, Sammy shares intimate stories about growing up there and even secrets from his childhood that he had never told to anyone before. This book is a wonderful fathers and sons story. It is arresting from the very first page and kept me laughing, crying, cringing, and completely fascinated throughout. This book holds some of the richest storytelling I have read and I feel strangely honoured to have been invited into their memories and their world for the time they allowed me to join them. I highly recommend this book to everyone!
