    I am unabashedly a Roland Merullo fan. His prose is fluid and simply wonderful to read. This book is largely autobiographical, but since Merullo grew up north of Boston, as did I, the places and landmarks (and people) were familiar to me. That made the book even more fun to read. It is a testimony to the author's skill that he can fill nearly 200 pages with thoughtful insight and introspective reflection (it really is a deep book, like what is the meaning of life?) but hold my interest to the ex [...]

    I was interested in this because his novel, “In Revere In Those Days” seemed so autobiographical and I wanted to find out about the “real” Roland Merullo. Hs growing up in a close-knit Italian family in Revere, Massachusetts and winning a scholarship to Phillips Exeter Academy is a part of the novel, which ends with graduation from Phillips Exeter. Merullo graduated from Brown University where he met his future wife, Amanda. He had learned Russian in college (and at Phillips?) and spent [...]

    I appreciated the self-reflection in this book, the realistic portrait of a place like Revere. Merullo could have romanticized, sought out melodramatic details, but instead of nostalgia, of a black and white portrait, he gives an honest color photograph. No need to dig too deep beneath the surface. His pursuit of goodness drives the book, a series of personal essays. The autobiographical sum is greater than the parts.

    I thought it would be about Revere Beach back in its heyday. (It was the first public beach in America). But, it wasn't.The author grew up in Revere but then moved on. The book is about his life.He is a pretty good writer, however, and he has had some interesting adventures, so I kept reading even though it wasn't what I was expecting. Good until the final chapter or so, which he used to explain his theories on the meaning of life.

    A refelection of a life lived honestly, with all the variables a life gives us. Though I often forget, gratitude and a sense of humbleness of spirit will offer more open-mindedness and serendipitous opportunity than one could possibly imagine.

    Whether it was the loss of one's father or learning from failure, this author spoke to me!
