Gift of Seeds is a collection of stories as diverse as we are. Through the author’s vivid descriptions, we feel what it’s like to grow up in Levittown, Long Island, America’s first planned suburb. With him, we survive swimming lessons and bullies, polio shots and pranks. We fall in and out of love, get back up, and find the real thing.
Along the way, we encounter spiders and elephants, get acquainted with birth and death and grief, experience joy and pain, and learn about being human. The essays are poignant, funny, insightful, real. Written in a voice as old as yesterday and as fresh as tomorrow, Gift of Seeds could be everyone’s memoir.
