Inhaltsangabe: Greek Boy- Growing Up Southern is a riotous journey through the peg-pants, Jim Crow 50s, the free-love 60s and the PCP 70s. The journey begins when Dino's zany immigrant parents stop for lunch and a diaper change in the sleepy little one-jukebox town of Myrtle Beach. They end up buying the little cafe (The Kozy Korner) and moving into the apartment above it.
"That little cafe was a cathedral of firsts...first kiss, first cussword, taste of scotch, poker game, peek at a breast, fistfight, first time I saw a man die."
From his bedroom window young Dino could see the ocean, the jitterbug dancers, hear the kids squealing on the roller coaster, smell the cotton candy and taste the exhaust from street traffic.
"I didn't think I had a weird upbringin," said Dino. "I figured no big whoop to live over a movie theater, across from an amusement park, eat all my meals in a cafe, fall asleep to merry-go-round music and the electric taste of the bumper cars. Didn't think it weird that my childhood best friends were jitterbugs, carnies, gypsies, gamblers, gigolos, black cooks, busty waitresses and crusty old kibitzers with syrupy thick accents."
Pat Conroy writes, "Dino Thompson's book, Greek boy, is a love song to the fabled seaside resort of Myrtle Beach. It is hilarious, warm-hearted and a complete joy to read."
The stories gathered are timeless classics crafted in an unmistakably authentic voice. Dino's cinematic descriptions and lovable cast of characters make you yearn to have been there.
