On today's episode I talk to writer Joseph Kertes. Joe was born in
Hungary but escaped with his family to Canada after the revolution
of 1956. He studied English at York University and the University
of Toronto and founded Humber College's distinguished creative
writing and comedy programs. As an author, he's written a number of
books including Winter Tulips and Boardwalk. His third book
Gratitude won the Canadian National Jewish Book Award and the U.S.
National Jewish Book Award for Fiction, and his latest book The
Afterlife of Stars, based on his childhood in Hungary, is a New
York Times Editor's Choice.
