    The joy of Jimmy's childhood shines through in this memoir. Clearly it wasn't easy being a kid in a large Irish Catholic family in the Bronx in the fifties - I found myself saying more than once "they let kids do that back then?"

A great nostalgic read, even for those who weren't yet born and have never lived in NYC.(Full disclosure - I helped Jimmy publish this book:)
