    1960’s Coming of Age/Adventure/Action

    Goodbye, Rudy Kazoody was a well written, realistic, coming of age story as narrated by Joey aka "Priest" in New York in the 1960s; all the trials, tribulations and adventures he and his friends had during their time living on Arthur Avenue, a famous street in New York City, currently known for it's culinary treasures for good cooks, gourmands and chefs. Joey/Priest, one of a group of immigrant teenagers known as the Black Knights, tells us of the many adventures he and his friends had, some hilarious and some downright scary, all while learning about life in America, keeping his Italian roots, and customs. Many of us may remember the cosy family suppers on Sunday, our Mothers making the special tomato sauce, known as "Sunday gravy" filled with a variety of meat, tomatoes and vegetables, just one of many customs in the Italian way of life in America. Joey/Priest, and his cousin Spike and their gang of neighborhood youths, come to spend time at Spike’s clubhouse. The clubhouse is where the guys hang out, meet with girls, play jokes and games on each other and do their best to have fun despite the angst of being a teenager in a foreign country. I could relate to the many adventures these youth had growing up in the 1960's, mostly it was fun, but we still had a strict background of church and school as the backbone of our lives. AA Freda writes brilliantly making this book definitely one of my all time favorites, a story to read again and again. (BookTasters review)
