“Historically important, insightful, and hugely entertaining”

Debra Di Blasi, author of Drought and Prayers of an Accidental Nature

“Bold and frank, Crime A Day tells Joe DiBuduo’s story of growing up poor and hungry, of the redemptive power of love, and one man’s ability to change his life of circumstance to a life of choice. A fascinating glimpse into the seedy underbelly of mid-20th Century America.”

Michaela Carter, author of Further Out Than You Thought

By turns unsettling, witty and tragic, Crime A Day exposes the harsh consequences of childhood poverty, educational deprivation and social marginalization. DiBuduo went from a hard-working 6-year-old paperboy to a 22-year-old ex-con with a history of incarceration spanning nearly a decade. An unforgettable memoir about tough gangsters and hard drinkers, corrupt police and cynical judges, and the hungry, hardscrabble kids who survived “Hano”— once Boston’s roughest and most impoverished neighborhood.

Crime A Day – A Memoir

My Memoir

a memoir by Joe DiBuduo


A gritty, candid, and compelling story of poverty and street life.


Joe DiBuduo grew up in “Hano,” an infamous, impoverished Boston neighborhood known for its tough, hard-drinking residents. He embraced a criminal code of conduct and thought dying in the electric chair would be an honorable achievement. After many run-ins with the law, Joe fled to Chicago where he finally did hard time in the notorious Cook County Jail. Crime a Day sheds a harsh and unwavering light on how youth are drawn to and into crime, and just how hard it is to get out. An important historical and cultural document.

Read an Excerpt:

If you’ve never experienced stomach-wrenching hunger with no sign of rescue, or an excruciating toothache or earache with no access to medical intervention, then you may never understand what I’m about to tell you. You might think that my choices in life were caused by laziness, impulsivity or my inability to “pull myself up by my own bootstraps.” But, you’d be wrong. In order to accomplish that feat I would have needed to know which way was up. In Hano, there was no up; there was just Hano. No one I knew dreamed of a better world, a better place. Everyone’s solution to every problem was to get drunk and forget about it, or get drunk and fight about it. My beliefs took hold inside the hopelessness of Hano, and I was captivated by the dramas unfolding around me.

JOE-DIBUDUO-PHOTO-trimmed1Joe DiBuduo grew up poor in Boston. He led a troubled childhood and spent time in reform and training schools. As an adult, the house of corrections beckoned him, and he spent time there too. A quick turn of fate led him to California and then Chicago, where he married and had children. He spent the next thirty years working as a construction painter in many states, heading wherever the jobs could be found. DiBuduo is now retired and lives in Prescott, Arizona, where he studied Creative Writing at Yavapai College. Anger used to be a daily part of his life until he began to write. Now if something upsets him, he writes about it. DiBuduo is the author of A Penis Manologue: One Man’s Response to The Vagina Monologues; a children’s book; and collections of flash fiction and lyrical flash fiction. He’s also the author of poetry, short fiction, and children’s stories published in online journals and in print anthologies.
