"An intelligently conceived meditation on the curative powers of storytelling." –Kirkus Reviews

Seth Feinberg, in spite of being an atheist, has always seen life through a Jewish lens. Inheriting a Nazi officer’s full- length leather coat from his Holocaust-survivor grandfather motivates him to research and write fictional stories about his grandparents’ and the coat’s possible history. Ultimately, he is able to define his personal relationship with the coat, his Judaism, and the world.

About the Author

April Grunspan became enamored of writing while studying under author Carole Klein at Goddard College during the 1970s. She worked as a journalist and an editor until she took a long break to raise a family. She has now returned to her love of crafting fiction. Her inspiration for The Coat is a Nazi officer's coat her son did, indeed, inherit from his Holocaust-survivor grandfather. This is her first published novel.
