“A Collection of Bummer Summers” is a highly entertaining compilation of true tales about the author’s hardcore life back in Rosebank, Staten Island, when he was a member of Dapper Dan’s Wacky Racers Motorcycle Club. The public, especially those with a history of Harley and Triumph motorcycle riding and racing, is encouraged to attend.
“Chaos cluttered the streets of New York City back then, which in the 1960s was all about Burn, Baby, Burn, especially in the ghetto neighborhoods where buildings were being incinerated. The cops were pigs. Revolutionaries were stirring up trouble on the Lower East Side. Squatters moved in everywhere. Lots of heroin was going down. And the French Connection was strong. The city was a place where nobody gave a rat’s ass about anybody but themselves.”
“I’m surprised you’re alive.” – Fred, a member of Johnny’s Yoga class.
The book, illustrated by Sarah Gayle, is already available at Canyon Way Bookstore, and at the Newport & Toledo Public Libraries, Nye Beach Book House, Sarah Gayle Art Gallery in Toledo, online from Amazon, and direct from Dancing Moon Press.
