About this title


The Tinsmith''s Son is the memoir of a boy in Memphis growing into adulthood during the latter part of the depression, How he worked at a tin shop on skid row, ready to go under at any time, and a Dad who fought a constant battle for its survival. From working on roofs where the pitch would blind and fill the lungs with sulphur, crawling under houses smelling the booze of the man next to him, or the exhilaration he felt as he covered steeples high above the city; it is the story of a lad as he grows to become a man in the sheet metal business. It''s the tale of the tinner''s who drank hard, chased women, did grueling work, but had compassion, kindness, and wisdom. The Tinsmith''s Son brings to life the rancorous shenanigan''s of these men, and the people of the street. The high-steppers, and the down-and-outer''s who suffered through the depression, but kept their dignity. From those bittersweet times emerges the story of a boy and girl as they fell in love and the way that love shaped their lives. Through the eyes of these youngster''s passes on to the the reader all the passion, curiosity, and joy as they grew together. Werner brings to life the sadness and anquish of a wife as she deals with the loss of newborn babies, and her grit and determination to have a healthy child. Its a wonderful book of dreams and how those dreams really did come true.
