Editorial Reviews

Review

The NY Times: "A captivating and vivid memoir..."

Ken Auletta of The New Yorker magazine: "A poignant and funny memoir...."

The Newark Star Ledger: "Paul LaRosa nails the twilight era of American newspapers with the aplomb of the award-winning journalist he became."
Tom Robbins, investigative journalist: "LaRosa has a great ear, a great eye and a great sense of self-effacing humor...a marvelous tale of a fast-disappearing part of New York."

From the Author

The reviews -- both professional and from readers -- have been outstanding. This memoir makes the perfect gift for any relative who grew up in The Bronx back in the '60 and '70s. I hope you'll take a read and let me know what you think. I appreciate all your support.

Best,

Paul
