Translated by Zeke Levine
Sam Liptzin-also known as Feter Shepsl, Uncle Sam, and Kvikzilber (Quicksilver)-was a self-proclaimed "radical humorist." Born in Lipsk, Belarus, in 1893, Liptzin moved to the United States in 1909 and became active in leftist politics as an organizer, speaker, and writer. For much of his career, he wrote a regular column in the Morgen Freiheit-the Yiddish Communist journal. Writing through the 1970s, Liptzin published twenty-eight volumes of short stories, poems, and aphorisms. This volume contains 21 sketches.
