Buy the book here! The Boy From Worcester by Bob Pitchman is a must-read portrait of late 1950s-late 1960s East Coast America. But that label alone would be a great disservice to all the many other things it is: a terrific illustration of the importance of families; a deft painting of friendship; a story of loss, of betrayal, of youth, and of dreams; and love, the one thing that binds this gallery of human interconnectedness together as we follow Bob's early experiences in Worcester Massachusetts, as he learned to make a street gang family amongst friends, after having been orphaned at an early age. Mr. Pitchman's descriptive -imagery is florid, painting indelible images in your mind as you follow his life along at a brisk-pace. Never once does his collection of chronological stories waver too long, and the overarching themes of redemption in the promise of love and acceptance weave a strong through line that keeps you turning the pages. The Boy From Worcester's plotting conjures to mind the best of a gripping dramatic movie, but one is reminded that it's all based in truth; Hollywood moguls would be nuts to ignore a well-adapted screenplay from this novel. Truly there are many life lessons to be learned amidst the tales here; like the best stories, conflict is central to each unique chapter, as well as to the overall spine. But no matter the flashpoints or the losses Bob and his gang (or more appropriately, "Family") suffer, there are always values learned along the way that lead the reader to an even deeper understanding of our human nature. One is well-advised to listen to one who's experienced so much in life, so early on; The Boy From Worcester is indeed a treasure-trove of this early life discovery. Buy it here:
