I’m an author in search of readers. If your club decides to read my memoir, Crime A Day: Death By Electric Chair & Other Boyhood pursuits, or one of my other published books, I’ll be available to answer questions by SKYPE, email, or perhaps in person if I’m in your area.
“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.
