Comedy and laughter come to the rescue of two teen-age boys in a background of 1942 Midwestern mediocrity. From the Depression into World War II, they feel ignored by working mothers and an indifferent, industrial Indianapolis. As buddies, they find laughter and hope while enduring the problems of puberty, the discovery of girls, learning life's lessons mostly from light-hearted movies, vaudeville, and the comedies of network radio. Their hilarious and naive efforts to become comedy stars thrust them into early manhood, from high school to show biz. Their story is humorous and touching, a roller coaster ride of experiences, giving the reader a rib-tickling glimpse of their hopes and dreams, struggles and setbacks, all in a warm tapestry of fun and good feelings.

About the author (2004)

With a successful history in radio, television, theater and stand-up comedy, Paul A. Lennon presents his novel, A GLIMPSE OF GLORY! It’s a fun-packed romp, starring two fictional teen-age best buddies. With a background of World War II, we share their struggles with growing pains, pretty girls, bullies, and their humorous attempts to get into vaudeville.

Paul A. Lennon was born in Indianapolis, Indiana, where much of his story takes place. He’s a graduate of Indiana University, where he majored in Speech/Education, before launching his long-term broadcasting and advertising career. Along the way, some of the people he met inspired this light-hearted tale, including the adventures, thrills, laughs and foibles experienced by his book’s characters. Mr. Lennon, an Indiana Broadcast Pioneer, is Vice- President of the Indiana Broadcaster’s Association Pioneers. He and his wife, Polly, are the parents of six and live in Indianapolis.
