Brilliant !!
I haven't read for years but,thanks to bookRix and Joe Parente, I've been reminded of what I could have been missing. I bet my next reading experience isn't as enjoyable as this was. Thanks Joe.

Hello!

Loved reading the book, when it ended, it was with a great disapppointment that I closed the book; despite the smile on my face and a warm heart. Wish you could expand the book more - perhaps Joe and Frankie becoming adults.......

Thank you and all the best!

I think I like this story best. It has character, atmosphere and humour. The plot is well-constructed and the writing is lean and spare with a good ear for idioms.

Thank you for your response. Yes, part of the beginning of this story is true.
This is the first chapter of a novel that I am working on. I will let you know of the outcome./joeparente

What a delightful story! I could feel the drama of the chase in the rail-yards, and the tenderness of the family scenes. I winced at the destruction of Guido's instep. Although I did not grow up in an area like Little Italy, I am a child of the '50's, and grew up in a large city. This is definitely a favorite of mine.
