Poetry. Literary Nonfiction. Memoir. Disability Studies. Culled from 30 years of short stories, poetry and one cookbook, THE FEAST OF SAINT ROCCO is witness to the late 20th century in the footstep and eye of the Autistic child of immigrants to an America at New Age crossroads. From 50's abuse/Rock & Roll salvation—'wiseguy' streets—the Newark riots—to Hippie Revolution—the story presents epiphany and redemption—Asbury Park to McLeod Ganj—under the boardwalk to Dalai Lama backyard—in Cubist stream from downtown Woodstock.
