Our Father: Recollections of a Small Town Boy

Front Cover
iUniverse, Mar 1, 2003 - Fiction - 500 pages
For a third generation Italian-American boy life takes on a number of twists and turns as he matures from a child into a teenager. He must cope with the pressures imposed by a strict dad and a younger brother whose antics are intolerable.

In his journey into adulthood Nicholas D'Napoli encounters a number of bizzarre people and episodes that will leave you laughing or crying.

The characters are hilarious. In this walk down memory lane you'll witness the escapades and pranks of people that defy normalcy, like the transvestite who dresses like Greta Garbo, or the voyeur who plays peek-a-boo while hiding in the neighbor's bushes.

Through Nick we're reminded of our first kiss or the embarrassment of blowing that special moment with the love of our dreams.

D'Napoli guides us through our own youths; old friends, the bully in the schoolyard, first loves and broken hearts.
