Editorial Reviews

Review

Well crafted, this story winds its way to a conclusion that you never could have guessed. -- Dave McAveeny, Author, Kipling in Gloucester

From the Publisher

These 296 pages of literary fiction will appeal to all baby boomers. The 70s were tumultuous times and this book, Ed's first novel, is a bittersweet representation of just that. For anybody who has ever visited Gloucester it's a treat.

More About the Author

I write and paint with passion, ignoring as many rules as possible except one. Get the idea across succinctly, by whatever means are at hand. Then trust viewer and reader instinct to grasp the message. If they have to work a little, hey that never killed anyone.

I enjoy the abandon with which children approach art. There are few things more gratifying than seeing the fresh, unabridged expressions of emotional worlds. As story tellers, they are energetic and exciting. We, as adults, can learn a lot from them when we look and listen.

Totally enjoyed this book. Brought back wonderful memories of the 70's and a beautiful area we used to visit.

Ed brought the characters and the area alive, made them easy to relate to.

Can't wait for the next book!

What a "wicked good" book! I realize it claims to be fiction... I understand that the chain of events, the characters, the costumes at the Beaux Arts Ball all seem a little too far-fetched and off the wall. But trust me, stuff like that happens around here! Donna's fashion reviews from her favorite barstool are accurate and on the money. The Les Moor/Bobby Crosby's surprize us around here all the time. (And the written local accent - 'spoken' more authentically than the ones from "A Perfect Storm" The Movie.)

From his perch high atop his 'fictious' Banner Hill, Ed has colored everyone just as vividly in his book as they truly appear on the Neck...and in his paintings. Cannot overlook the nod to our favorite dog, either - only a Labrador would put up with people like this, in a place like no other.

Great fictional book about Rocky Neck! (Even though I've heard from locals that it's not so fictional!) If you have ever been to Gloucester, MA you have to read this book!

By T. C. Saunders on September 7, 2004
Format: Paperback
Amongst other things this novel is a love letter to Gloucester, MA, its people, its architecture, its world old and new. It's also about the layering of lives and stories that make up history, the accretions of time and of the imagination. Frank brings a unsettled life with him when he comes to the Gloucester of the 1970s, memories of a dead friend and a failed relationship, and builds something more solid amid the many colourful characters who frequent the restaurants and bars along the waterfront. New friends and loved ones are found and old friends and loves are reassessed. All is not how it seems at first. This is a rich novel and an enjoyable one. Buy it!
