Heartwarming and sad, life is filled with laughter and tears. But for the children everywhere, the painful transition to adulthood is a universal constant.
The son of immigrants living in Hamtramck, Michigan during the Great Depression, Wallace Caminsky grew up knowing hardship and sorrow, as well as joy and love. Part of the "Greatest Generation" during World War II, he saw life and death first-hand. And returning home to start his own family, he experienced the challenges and frustrations of supporting a family in the new and untamed wilderness of Suburbia---where crabgrass and children can both grow, wild and untamed.
In All Fathers Are Giants, Wallace Caminsky draws upon the rich, cultural heritage of the immigrants from Eastern Europe in the early 20th Century. His collection of short stories and poems brings to life a bygone age now largely lost to suburban sprawl and computer games.
