About the Book

Remember that first kiss, the awkwardness of puberty, that first hangover, and your first driver's license? They were all a part of growing up, rites of passage into adulthood. For Italian males of those middle years, that exhilarating time after World War II up until the emergence of the Generation-X male, it was also a scary time. New-Age Renaissance Man traces the footsteps of a traditional Italian-Catholic boy through the growing pains of life. It tells the tale of an inner city brat that was never quite certain of his role during those times, but who felt bound by tradition. The world was changing and modernism was revealing itself. How did the baby boomers come to terms with this changing world? Follow along through those exciting times that led the American men into the next millennium. There is much to be learned about how men of all ethnic backgrounds survive change and what makes them tick.
