"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.
