Although the streets of the Bronx in New York were not paved in gold, the 1940s and 1950s were the golden years for author Eugene Racond. In this personal memoir, he shares his experiences and what it was like growing up in that era in this special borough.Now in his mid-seventies, Racond chronicles his life from childhood to adolescence. Written with humor and heart, Stickball and Egg Creams provides a glimpse into this special time in America. From vacations in the Catskills, to his escapades sneaking cigarettes, excursions to Coney Island, and stickball games with friends, this narrative provides a nostalgic look at the 1940s and ’50s. In addition, Racond recounts his family’s hardships in Poland and Russia, their arrival from Europe, and their strong will to succeed in the United States.From his many experiences, Racond developed firm beliefs in his world and his life, and he shares these views on politics and presidents in Stickball and Egg Creams. But more than anything, this heartwarming memoir portrays the feeling that growing up in the Bronx was something to be proud of. 3
