Having been born and raised in Brooklyn, I can honestly say that this “Fictional” trilogy could have actually happened in 50′-60’s Brooklyn. The Author has eloquently depicted an amazingly accurate representation of an Italian family, growing up in Brooklyn, doing whatever it takes to protect themselves and their business. I was gratified to read an Author that was bold enough to put down on paper, whether fictional or not, how I remember my “Life in Brooklyn”. If you are a Brooklynite or know someone who is, this Trilogy is worth the read. I give it “4 Pens Up”.
