In this memoir and collection of original verses, longtime barber, singer, and son of Trenton, New Jersey recalls a life filled with adventure, dreams, and love.
Anthony Cardelli is a man of many dreams, and he shares them all in this book of poetry and memoirs written over four decades. He explores his passion for life; love for music; and memories of being a husband, father, grandfather and soldier.
He also recalls growing up during the Great Depression with fellow Italians in the Chambersburg section of Trenton. He was already working at the age of six, and he opened up a barber shop before becoming a soldier in the US Army and serving in the Korean War. Through it all, his dreams and ambitions were filled with music—particularly that of Frank Sinatra. Throughout his life he became a popular area singer, drawing inspiration and energy from life’s melodies.
Join Cardelli as he recounts his most challenging times and triumphs in this deeply emotional and profound look at life.
