You didn't have to grow up in West Philly or even be a baby boomer to enjoy this book of hilarious essays about the life and times of corner boy and humorist, Fred Lavner. Come along with Lavner as he's schooled by mean old teachers with only one mission--to teach you to sit up straight, be quiet, and walk in a straight line during air raid or fire drills. You'll laugh out loud at the games he played, the mischeif he made, the characters from the corner, and the stories of growing up in a neighborhood where life was lived with a middle class joie de vie by people who were as different as day and night, but shared a common mistrust of the other. From the street corners of Philly, to summers at the Jersey shore, to trespassing at Presidential retreat, Camp David, come along with Fred & friends as they come of age at a time and place the likes of which we'll never see again. Those were boom times, baby! Hardback, 378 pages
