This book is nothing like his previous stuff.
It is a trip down memory lane for a catholic american male growing up as a baby boomer.
Parts are funny, parts are thought provoking and some parts have way too much personal info (Yes his wife was right he should have let out THAT chapter) LOL (You will know what I mean when you read the book).
If you fit into his demographic you will certainly identify with it. For other you can get a look into a life.
I think his best stuff was the writing on the question of GOD.
I recommend it.

In this book, Frank examines and reminisces about growing up Catholic, in Brooklyn. He brings to the pages what you might hear if you got together with your friends and got nostalgic. I, like Frank, was born in Brooklyn, and spent my youth there. . I can totally relate to what he is writing.about. It seems that his friends were my friends. Their thoughts, my thoughts. Their escapades and adventures, mine also. I am not finished yet with the book, but so enjoyed so much what I have read, that I wanted to share it with you. This is a great book for anyone who grew up Catholic or anyone who knew a
Catholic and wanted to peek into the confessional booth (which Frank does, with predictable fun). I bought another copy and am gifting it to a friend who is a priest. But first I am going back to my old haunts in Brooklyn, to reminisce, to see the old apartment, the old school, the Church, and get flooded with memories. That is what this book has done for me.
If you have read any of Frank's books and enjoyed his ability to weave a story, this book is a must read.
