I know the author of this book. I worked with him years ago and I enjoyed reading about his childhood. I tried finding him to say hi but I couldn't find an address. Being a brief resident of Chicago, it was nice to remenisce about the places and neighborhoods he mentions in Chicago. Good insight into a big Irish family and all the capers each kid got into.
DEAD-SHOT
Joe Murphy has crafted a funny, touching and incredibly detailed account of a large, dynamic Irish Catholic family living on Chicago's South Side in the 'fifties. Surrounded by a strong, hard-working and principled father, a pious, anxious, loving mother and a highly varied and sometimes dangerous collection of siblings, Murphy makes his way through boyhood, surviving school and the local toughs and submitting to the rigors of Catholic teaching while having as good a time as possible. If you're a South sider, a Leo graduate, or a survivor of Catholic education, you'll find a lot to like in this engaging account. I did.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book,it was humorous,adventurous,mischievous,educational,it allowed my own memories of my childhood events to re-surface ,that was unexpected but pleasant.Joe has an amazing memory for detail that allows the reader to be able to be transcended to the place,the person's or the feeling easily. That vivid detail gives one the sense of being inside the stories, the family,and the places described so well.I came from a smaller family 6 not 9,smaller city ,non-catholic upbringing but i did grow up in the fifties, also i would imagine if there were even more similarities ,it might engage some readers, even more than it already does. I could say much more but instead, i will say buy the book take your time reading ,if you can,it is well divided short paragraphs and stories easy to read.when your done you might keep it to read again or pass it to a friend who you might think will enjoy also( that's what i did Bette, said she knows she will enjoy it after i described it to her) , a great gift to yourself and a friend. I personally recommend this book to most readers. Jim from Madison

I really enjoyed this book. It brought back so many memories of growing up in the old neighborhood. It's funny and sweet and warm. Joe Murphy manages to capture a boy's perspective on the highs and lows of growing up. He brings his family and his neighborhood to life with incredible detail. Although he lived in a big city, his neighborhood made it seem more like a small town.

Enjoyed this book very much. I was raised on the south side of Chicago, as was my husband, and we enjoyed reliving the days of the 50's. Good seller, prompt delivery.

I was glad to find this for my husband. He came from that neighborhood and really enjoyed reading Joe Murphy's book.

It's where I grew up, so it's nostalgic for me.
Book was not very good.
