Published by Xlibris
GROWING UP IN BRIDGEPORT IN THE ‘40S AND ‘50S is a collection of essays written by the author and published in The Bridgeport Leader over a two-year period, from 2002 to 2004. Drawn from the author’s memory, these essays describe the sights and sounds, adventures, drama, humor and tragedies of the author’s youth. With its informal and familiar tone, and its recurring references to local figures and locales, the author draws the reader into this world, making it more than just the memoirs of a single individual; instead the memoirs of a small Midwestern oil town.
