About the Book

What do the boys reared during the 50s in an old Italian neighborhood in the city of Philadelphia think about modern-day values in America?

Why not join us on September 6, 2001 at La Strega Restaurant for their annual dinner to find out?! You should be aware that the boys’ new, first-time guest is a famous New York City madam who has a lot to say.

Important subjects such as politics, religion, sex, family stability, divorce, abortion, food and spirits, among others, are heatedly discussed. Needless to say, the dinner guests are not impressed with a number of modern American values and believe that there’s an urgent need to bring back some of the old neighborhood ones.

On September 11, less than a week after the dinner, the Attack on America occurred. They all then reconvened for dinner to discuss what impact this would have on American values, if any.

It is important to note that many of the viewpoints are politically incorrect and sometimes the rough language of the old neighborhood is employed.
