I wrote A Bronx Boy’s Tale to share my experiences growing up in the Bronx. But it became much more than a memoir. The lesson I learned from writing my book and talking to my readers is that A Bronx Boy’s Tale is as much about life in twenty-first century America as it is about life in the Bronx in the 1960’s and ’70’s.
Families, Friends, and Community helped me through assassinations and social upheaval back in the day and continue to help us all survive ebola scares and ISIS threats and a dysfunctional government.
A Bronx Boy’s Tale is more about now than nostalgia.
