This is a book about a Jewish family that makes strudel and one of the keys of making the strudel, is the family stories that they tell. Some of the stories are funny and some are scary and some are sad. It also has two different recipes for strudel in case you want to try it!
Che delusione quando ho capito che non era una storia unica, bensì una raccolta di short stories...ricordo che avevo un'alta aspettativa su questo libro, dettata dal titolo.

I was born in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, the land of four distinct seasons. The winters are so long!

Wintry days and nights inspired me to read many, many books, the most important thing a writer can do. Of course other seasons inspired me, too! And as soon as I learned to hold a pencil I began writing poems, stories, and diaries.

I have always owned cats (or they have owned me, a cliché, but true!)
