"Growing Up Italian in the 50s" by Tom (Thomas) DePaoli speaks to the heart of the baby boomer generation. Whether you're Greek, Irish, Russian or Cuban, chances are your family has deep pride in your ancestry. Tom DePaoli shares not only his pride in being Italian, but also his childhood in a small Pennsylvanian town in his memoir, "Growing Up Italian in the 50s" (ISBN 1467992364). While children today are surrounded by video games, iPods and personal computers, DePaoli believes that his childhood in the 1950s was much better than those today. He demonstrates how he and his neighborhood friends didn't rely on modern-day conveniences to entertain themselves. Rather, they escaped to nearby woods and participated in little league baseball and sandlot football. DePaoli shares his memories so that more recent generations can realize how that time period really followed "the good old days" description. He also highlights the importance of family, as most of his memories involve his large, loving Italian family. "I primarily wrote this book to capture the experiences of growing up, and the 1950s seemed to be much better for children," DePaoli shares. "Not everyone turned out the better from this, but most of us did." "Growing Up Italian in the 50s" will instill a sense of nostalgia in baby boomers while showing younger generations what life was like for their parents and grandparents.
