Product Description

Review

"The 26 paintings and poems . . . tell the story of a Holocaust survivor from his youth . . . to his rebellious end."  —National Post



"Emotionally and psychologically immense. . . . The potency of so few words and strokes of paint is unexpected and undeniable."  —Chronicle-Herald

About the Author

Simon Schneiderman is a lawyer who taught himself how to draw and paint. He had for many years used words to make a living first in advertising and television and, then, as a litigator. In his thirties, he developed a writer’s block so pronounced he would fall asleep when his pen touched paper. He had to learn how to draw, to paint, to evade the wave that crashed over his ability to write. Through trial, error, and perseverance he discovered that painting was a language that could be learned no differently than any other. Twenty years later, everything he learned was applied to this book.
