FAMILY. TRADITION. RESPECT. LOYALTY. Everything we loved about The Godfather ...without the crime! Joe Mezilli is a very good man. A wonderful son, a loving father, a terrific husband, a successful businessman and a trusted friend, But he is definitely NOT in the Mob! Who he is, is the third generation owner of a trash hauling company. His grandfather, Giuseppe, was a hard working immigrant, who started the business with one beat-up old truck he bought with his life savings. Joe's father worked hard with "Zippie" to make the business survive and provide the platform that Joe -affectionately known as "Joey Trucks"- used to build the biggest and most successful trash hauling company in the Philadelphia area. He did it right, treated his men well, and avoided those mob ties that have long been a rumored part of "Waste Management'" One day Joe's life changes forever when a huge conglomerate makes him an offer he can't refuse. Joe takes the deal and eventually moves his young family to the small town of Forest, Virginia. Joe is wealthy, he has a gorgeous wife and four beautiful kids. Life is good. He's a guy who seemingly has it all. What he also has, along with his idyllic life, is a nosy neighbor with an obsession with the Mob. That's where Joe's problems begin. Phil Lowery is a retired foundry worker with an obsession with the Mob and an overly active imagination. He suspects Joe from the very beginning. When he sees him burying something suspicious in his garden, he thinks he is on to something. But when Phil overhears Joe talking about "Making seven people sleep with the fishes...on Christmas Eve" he is sure of it! In fact, he is so certain that his new Yankee neighbor is a mobster that he eventually gets the FBI involved...and Joe's dream life soon teeters on the brink of a nightmare. It's a hysterical case of mistaken identity, overactive imagination, and stereotypes run rampant. It's smart-mouthed, wise-cracking, family-loving Italian life, transplanted to the South. It's everything we miss about The Sopranos, without the crime!

""This is the America we need again! The America of greatness and achievement and imagination! The America libs hate and patriots weep over! It's the place you'll always call home. The place you run to --if only in your memories-- when you've lost your way and your compass can't find True North" " Where do you go when the wheels come off? When no place feels safe and you can't find a smiling face? When you've lost everything and you wonder if you'll ever get it back. Sometimes, you just need to go home. Do you remember when neighbors cared about each other because they really knew each other? Holding your baseball cap over your heart and singing the National Anthem on opening day of Little League because being American meant loving your country and showing respect? Do you remember Drive-in Movies, Spider Bikes with sissy bars and baseball cards in the spokes? Do you remember Tiger Beat magazine, Bobby Sherman and Davey Jones? Did Sunday Evening mean "Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom" and "The Wonderful World of Disney"? Do you remember a time and place in America when a kid could go outside on Saturday morning and stay out all day and nobody worried and nothing bad happened? When we walked to school, ran through the open yards where our moms were hanging out the clothes on a clothesline? Do you remember "The Carol Burnett Show" "Laugh-in" and "Happy Days"? When scary movies had legendary characters like Dracula or the Mummy or the Wolfman? Do you remember when our country was innocent...and so were we? "Remembering America: Looking Back at the Last Innocent Age" is a wonderful, sentimental, humorous, and emotional journey that takes one last look at the childhood of the last of the Baby-Boomers and their little brothers and sisters. If you grew up in the 60's and 70's, you'll fall in love with every story. The images are sweet and reminiscent of a different time...and what most would say was a better time. Author Craig Daliessio chronicled these wonderful stories during his own time of turmoil and homelessness after losing his career in the collapse in 2008. The memories, and images and words became his refuge during the most difficult and desperate time in his life. In his own words, Craig tells the "story of the story" "The only stories that didn't make me laugh with their silliness, were the ones that made me cry with their poignant sweetness. It was such a great time and a great period in America. My neighbors were my family and my friends and I walked together into adulthood with a bond that my own daughter will never know. I set out to simply chronicle the past in an effort to get a new grip on the future. What I wound up doing was revisiting the best time of my life and an America I miss more each day." It's an engaging, wistful, wonderful voyage to a sweet place in the hearts of those who were lucky enough to have grown up in "The Last Innocent Age"

Now a major motion picture starring Brie Larson, Naomi Watts and Woody Harrelson. This is a startling memoir of a successful journalist's journey from the deserted and dusty mining towns of the American Southwest, to an antique filled apartment on Park Avenue. Jeanette Walls narrates her nomadic and adventurous childhood with her dreaming, 'brilliant' but alcoholic parents. At the age of seventeen she escapes on a Greyhound bus to New York with her older sister; her younger siblings follow later. After pursuing the education and civilisation her parents sought to escape, Jeanette eventually succeeds in her quest for the 'mundane, middle class existence' she had always craved. In her apartment, overlooked by 'a portrait of someone else's ancestor' she recounts poignant remembered images of star watching with her father, juxtaposed with recollections of irregular meals, accidents and police-car chases and reveals her complex feelings of shame, guilt, pity and pride toward her parents.

Liz Murray never really had a chance in life. Born to a drug-addicted father who was in and out of prison, and an equally dependent mother who was in and out of mental institutions, she seemed destined to become just another tragic statistic. Another life wasted on the brutal streets of New York. By the age of 15, Liz found herself homeless with nowhere to turn but the tough streets, riding subways all night for a warm place to sleep and foraging through dumpsters for food. But when her mother died of AIDS a year later, Liz's life changed for ever. With no education, with no chance at a job or a home, she realised that only the most astonishing of turnarounds could stop her heading all the way down the same path her parents took. And so she set her mind to overcoming what seemed like impossible odds - and in the process, achieved something extraordinary. Told with astounding sincerity, Breaking Night is the breathtaking and inspirational story of how a young women, born into a world without hope, used every ounce of strength and determination to steer herself towards a brighter future. Beautifully written, it is a poignant, evocative and stirring portrait of struggle, desperation, forgiveness and survival.

From the New York Times bestselling author of Furiously Happy... When Jenny Lawson was little, all she ever wanted was to fit in. That dream was cut short by her fantastically unbalanced father and a morbidly eccentric childhood. It did, however, open up an opportunity for Lawson to find the humor in the strange shame-spiral that is her life, and we are all the better for it. In the irreverent Let’s Pretend This Never Happened, Lawson’s long-suffering husband and sweet daughter help her uncover the surprising discovery that the most terribly human moments—the ones we want to pretend never happened—are the very same moments that make us the people we are today. For every intellectual misfit who thought they were the only ones to think the things that Lawson dares to say out loud, this is a poignant and hysterical look at the dark, disturbing, yet wonderful moments of our lives. Includes a new chapter! Readers Guide Inside From the Trade Paperback edition.
