KIRKUS REVIEW

Slightly fictionized story of the author's own boyhood, in an Italian-American community near Rochester. His Sicilian family stubbornly clings to the old ways-the lad feels out of touch with both worlds, his family's and the American world in which he is living. An interesting insight into the first generation of Americans problem, and one which school boys will find recognizable and revealing. Incidental and episodic in treatment but with good stories and good humor.
