A Far Piece to Canaan Book Summary

Short-Summary:

A Far Piece to Canaan is a warm and nostalgic novel from an unexpected source: Sam Halpern, whose salty paternal wisdom made Justin Halpern’s Sh*t My Dad Says a phenomenal bestseller.
 
Inspired by Sam Halpern’s childhood in rural Kentucky, A Far Piece to Canaan tells the story of Samuel Zelinsky, a celebrated but troubled former professor who reluctantly returns after his wife’s death to the Kentucky hills where he lived as a child to reconnect with long-buried memories and make good on a forgotten promise.
 
A tale of superstition, secrets, and heroism in the postwar South, A Far Piece to Canaan: A Novel of Friendship and Redemption is the surprising and moving debut of a gifted storyteller.

    Sam Halpern has a gift: the ability to take a place and characters and make them come alive in your mind. This book has made me care deeply about its characters, the locations and their stories. I feel like I was raised with Samuel and Fred, and have shared their joys and pains. I sincerely hope that Mr. Halpern writes more books.
