Synopsis

Finding one’s way in the world is complex enough for the average urban 20-something in the 21st century, but Samantha Bernstein also happens to be the daughter of legendary Canadian poet Irving Layton. This extraordinary epistolary chronicle is an alternatively funny, heartbreaking, and confrontational debut memoir in which Bernstein tackles life, love, family, social engagement, and creativity head on.
