It’s Monday, What Are You Reading? 10/10/22

Good morning and happy Monday.

Welcome to October baseball! Any baseball fans out there?

I did not read as much as I had hoped last week, and it was all because of the Phillies. We advanced last weekend and now we face Atlanta on Tuesday, so my reading will be almost non-existent.  Go Phils!!

I’m still currently reading Mina and the Slayers, so I’m going to be finishing that up this week and try to complete a newly released confessional.

What are you reading this week?

Dirtbag, Massachusetts: A Confessional- Isaac Fitzgerald

Isaac Fitzgerald has lived many lives. He’s been an altar boy, a bartender, a fat kid, a smuggler, a biker, a prince of New England. But before all that, he was a bomb that exploded his parents’ lives-or so he was told. In Dirtbag, Massachusetts, Fitzgerald, with warmth and humor, recounts his ongoing search for forgiveness, a more far-reaching vision of masculinity, and a more expansive definition of family and self.

Fitzgerald’s memoir-in-essays begins with a childhood that moves at breakneck speed from safety to violence, recounting an extraordinary pilgrimage through trauma to self-understanding and, ultimately, acceptance. From growing up in a Boston homeless shelter to bartending in San Francisco, from smuggling medical supplies into Burma to his lifelong struggle to make peace with his body, Fitzgerald strives to take control of his own story: one that aims to put aside anger, isolation, and entitlement to embrace the idea that one can be generous to oneself by being generous to others.

Gritty and clear-eyed, loud-hearted and beautiful, Dirtbag, Massachusetts is a rollicking book that might also be a lifeline.
