Description

It's a winter's day, perhaps the last day of an old man's existence. Matt "Tug" Cutugno has lived a good life, that of a hard working family man. He has earned the right to a happy ending; he wants a pat on the back for a job well done. But just where is his reward? Tug's wife and children are gone and his dreams of a future are now memories of his past - the war; getting married and raising a family; his days as a working man. His present is filled by winter barbeques of grilled kielbasa for breakfast, grilled chicken for lunch and grilled zucchini and hot dogs for dinner. As he sits on his lawn chair in the snow-covered backyard of the home that he built himself, a menagerie of wonderful people visits this extraordinary everyman who is not searching for himself, but who is seeking the meaning of what he accomplished in this life.

And with each visit from his wife, his children, his friends and neighbors, his war time buddies, the story of this brave and unsentimental man unfolds so that the past and present merge into something that can be called the truth of an entire generation of men who fought in World War II.

THE REVIEWS

"The Winter Barbeque is an exceptional work - a bittersweet journey of years, traversed in hours, while melting the boundaries between memory and reality."

-- M.L. Martin
Editor-in-Chief, "The Hilltop Observer"

"The Winter Barbeque is an extraordinary and vivid memoir about the best that there is in a father. The author's honest and sympathetic style makes this an enormously rewarding work." ?
-- D.S Lliteras, author of "Thieves of Golgotha" and "The Master of Secrets"
