About the Book (Excerpts & Info)

Are you searching for a book to read that takes you on a fascinating lifetime trip? It was written by Claude Morell, a man who was born in Spain in 1928, came to the U.S. when he was 11 months old and lived his first 30 years on the Lower East Side of Manhattan between the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges. As a child, Claude was shy, innocent and naive, but at 16 he was “streetwise” with enough spunk, confidence and toughness to defend himself. His memoirs intertwine historical events and prominent people together with the many intriguing adventures of his fruitful life. Claude will introduce you to an extensive and appealing description of his neighborhood’s people, apartments and storefront businesses during the 1930’s and 40’s. In addition, he will touch on the lives of some shady characters as well as some prominent figures, such as Jimmy Durante and Al Smith, who lived on the Lower East Side. He describes interesting experiences in the military, hitch-hiking to Mexico, traveling through Europe and his marriage to a girl in Spain. Claude also elaborates on his two engrossing careers as a pharmacist and a high school science teacher as well as his early retirement at the age of 55. The book ends with his life in Spain, where he and his wife recently celebrated their 50 year anniversary.
