"We All Giggled" tells the stories of two families that come together when the authoras parents meet and marry in 1945. The HA1/4glins had lost most of their fortune in the course of two world wars, and the Wachendorffs had survived the Nazi years despite their Jewish ancestry. The familyas roots are traced back to a vineyard in southern Germany, a jail in Geneva, the Conservatory in St. Petersburg, and to the hometown of a Jewish merchant in Silesia. From the vantage point of the authoras adult life in Canada, the book centres on his recollections of his grandparents, parents, and his own growing up in postwar Germany, and chronicles a familyas abiding love for music, food, and art across several generations.
Through the eyes of a boy growing up in an environment of bourgeois stability and comfort, a rich tapestry of anecdotes unfolds about opera singers, restaurants, and travels and about family reunions, romance, and the kind of aimpromptu reactions to people, places, and situations that often result in uncontrollable giggles.a
