Nostalgic Comedy That Will Leave Them Laughing Like A Kid
The reader will be taken by the many similarities to his/her
own memorable past. In Never Say Uncle (now available
House), author Emilio Paletta presents his work as a fitting
tribute to the 50 and over gang, and to happier times when
life was sweeter than we knew.
Gathering material garnered from a rich medical background,
74 years of life experiences and Emilio's innate comedic timing,
Never Say Uncle was born. In addition to the funny
stuff, the title Never Say Uncle, in and of itself,
stands as a beacon to all who face adversity. The message
is cleverly interwoven throughout the story line.
Shortly after the death of his beloved mother, Sonny falls
into a state of depression, fearing that with her passing,
his proud ethnic heritage will come to an end. Later, hoping
to reconnect with his past he snaps out of it and decides
to go in search of an uncle not seen in over 50 years. After
many setbacks his hopes are sparked when he receives word
from a friend, that a man fitting his uncle's description,
is a resident of Dumpsters, a nearby nursing home.
Once verification is substantiated, weekly visits begin and
so does the fun. For starters, Sonny discovers that his 93-year-old
uncle Luigi Fettuccine is the fun-loving inspirational leader
of the constipated gang at Dumpsters. The chain of
events that follow will have the reader laughing like a kid
Fun filled situation after situation will leave them begging
for more. Finally, in the chapter Even Rainbows End,
not an eye will be dry when at 100, Luigi passes away and
Sonny finds the answer he's been searching for regarding his
heritage. The old childhood adage never say uncle, proves
true once again reminding the reader when faced with adversity,
hang tough and never give up. In a world in dire need of a
good old-fashioned belly laugh,
Never Say Uncle, more than fits the bill.
Never Say Uncle makes the perfect gift for grandparents.
It's easy reading, not about in-depth characterizations or
intricate plots, just pure entertainment.
