OUR BEST REVIEW SO FAR

"The book contains supple phrasing, sustained ambience, agile adjectives, nuanced participles, delicate intimacies, spellbinding vignettes, a whisper of spirituality, energetic voicing and nostalgia-tinged memories. It is bold, alluring and exotic - a propulsive read for all Americans." (Truth-in-Lending Disclosure: Kevin wrote this)











"Children of the same family, the same blood, with the same first associations and habits, have some means of enjoyment in their power, which no subsequent connections can supply." (Jane Austen)


About the Book

Eight brothers and sisters who grew up sharing everything from their fear of wild dogs to the neighbors’ watermelon patch contrast mostly humorous, sometimes touching, stories from their childhood with their good-natured e-mail exchanges of today.

Banding together as children, they are still each other’s best friends. Although in childhood they “ran wild,” as the neighbors put it, you can see what these kids have become today. They are what the world would call “professionals.” They have jobs, they pay bills, they contribute to their communities. But the best thing about them is that they love a good story, especially a funny good story.

This anthology of sixty-some essays and stories invites you into a world where a childish pack mentality blossoms into enduring adult friendships.
