Anthony Pecoraro IV


After thirty-five years in Health Care Anthony Pecoraro IV, known to his friends as Nino, was challenged to publish the letters he had written to his son. "The Gauntlet" is a story of rebellious teenager that rejects his family, and joins a street gang. Driven by anger he looked for trouble and often found himself on the wrong side of the law. After being charged with a felony, grand larceny, and a failed attempt at suicide, he found himself at the beginning of a forty-year journey trying to understand the demons that haunted him. Challenged by his son, he began to document the events that shaped his life. What he thought would be a cathartic exercise became “Letters to Brian.”
