Epiphany: Stories by Ferrol Sams



In Epiphany, Ferrol Sams once again displays the warmth, humor, and wisdom that have delighted readers and earned him many a comparison to Mark Twain. In typical Sams style, the three stories. are written with humor and heart. He is a master storyteller. I have just finished reading the first of the three stories included in Epiphany. It seems to be the one that has given the book its title, although there may be a common thread to three stories. Epiphany is an extremely powerful tale centred about the relationship between a doctor and one patient, although the doctor's relationship with the administrator of the clinic is also featured in the story. I read Ferrol Sam's trilogy,Run with the horsemen, The whisper of the river and When all the worl I have just finished reading the first of the three stories included in Epiphany.

From the bestselling author of eight novels, including Run with the Horsemen.   Each of these novella-length tales focuses on an epiphany—a revelation born of an unlikely interchange. A quixotic old doctor who loves poetry and battles bureaucracy talks with his new patient, an ex-con whose story of racism and injustice changes them both. The mettle of a man’s 40-year marriage is examined when he and his wife, on an expedition to gather wild plants, survive a series of odd accidents and strange encounters in the remote Georgia mountains. A group of smart-alecky high school seniors interviews the town’s oldest citizen and learns a lesson or two about the not-so-good (but maybe not-so-bad) old days and the bonds that can bridge generations. In Epiphany, Ferrol Sams once again displays the warmth, humor, and wisdom that have delighted readers and earned him many a comparison to Mark Twain.   “In typical Sams style, the three stories . . . are written with humor and heart. He is a master storyteller.”—Macon Telegraph

I was recently introduced to Ferrol Sams' books. Epiphany is the first book I've read of his. He is an excellent writer and storyteller. He is very intelligent, descriptive and writes great dialogue. I guarantee you will laugh until you cry at the funny and interesting way he sees the world and uses language. He really is a wordsmith. I plan on eventually purchasing everything he’s ever written. All three of the stories in Epiphany will make an emotional impact upon you.

One of my all time favorite authors! I have read it so many times I know the stories by heart and they never get old. If you love the southern voice in literature, this is destined to become your favorite too! I love it so much I bought two as gifts.

Read my other Ferrol Sams reviews. He's the greatest story teller ever! Buy them all! He is no longer with us and these are treasures! By all means buy them all!!!

My perspectives of Sambo are changing, growing, surely becoming mesmerized each time I have an annual medical or happen to see him in public! He always seems like an old, yet still youthful, and wiser, more knowledgeabe... "Good Friend!" From my first early physical in his Fayette Medical Center, he finished-up in using his usual "recorded Review" of my visit: "within my new patient, Fred Hood, the first words I heard were...Depression!"

Earlier I had met Dr. Sams, visiting his older, medical patients in Fayette Community Hospital! His nephews John Goza and Frank Cole were hospital staff Doctors. One day after Pastoral Visits I chanced to converse with both, as to how come "so many members of the Sams family" had chosen to become Doctors?" They quickly agreed that it was strictly because of Sambo's influence!

Once I began reading this EPIPHANY, his 7th book, I discovered along with his other reviewers, Sambo is the epitome of a superb story-teller! He can quickly draw one into his uniquely creative pictured characters of personality. His strengths for using Mark Goddard and Gregry McHune as his colaborators becomes obviously related between his actual life as husband and his wife, Helen!

I sat waiting in his office with new book of Prayers written by Professor Walter Brueggemann, as Sambo entered and saw that same book I had given him earlier. "This morning I was reading his 4th Prayer, "Stunned By Morning." Then he proceeded to quote the whole page of prayer, word by word without looking at the book!

In all of our conversations about his writing or what he's up-to in reading... he seems totally interested and caught-up becoming interested to my questions or reponse to his stories. Whenever we get to our "process of physical aging" he's agile, positively humorous, and places total emphasis upon inner, spiritual and mental attitudes. I am definitely an avid admirer of the medical expertise, powerfully gifted story-telling of my personality care-taker, who analizes, diagnoses, and even fullfills his own prescriptions! May he continue being the Blessed Physician for us for many more moons! Retired Chaplain, Fred W Hood
Each story strikes a cord of familiarity. Wth funny, touching and heart warming recollections of what feel like real life events, Sams, as usual, makes you laugh and cry. One story reminded me so much of my father, I wondered if he was the model! The reader experiences the depth of involvement all good "old-fashioned docs" have with interesting patients. As well, one gets a humurous look at the restrictions placed on health care by ignorant bureaucrats, The interaction between husband and wife in another story hits home for all married couples who have laughed at adverse conditions together - and suffered through them to reach even greater understanding of each other. For all of us as we grow older and remember what it was like to be an all-knowing teen, the third story stops you in your tracks as you reflect on where you have been and where you are going. A wonderful read that reaches deep inside and grabs you where you "feel".
