Ratting on Russo

Rated 5.00/5 based on 1 reviews
Of all the early boomers coming of age in sooty 1950s Pittsburgh, whose reverence was greater for Jimmy Doolittle and the 1950 Studebaker than that of Martin Badger? But whose bodily parts more rebellious? Whose 8th grade peers more annoying? Whose accordion more out of tune? Misdeeds more delinquent? Romances more blundered? Whose long odds worse--I mean, apart from Russo?

I loved this book. Made me want to return to eighth grade for another shot. And to learn (or have learned) to play the accordion.
