Frank Maraschiello, a middle school history teacher and a Buffalo, New York native, has completed his new book “Dress Jeans, Disco and Dating”: the story of Nick Carnavale, a teen entering high school during a time of shifting social mores and cultural norms that conflict with the upbringing he is accustomed to in the Italian-American West Side section of working class Buffalo. It is a story of love first love and friendship that spans 40 years.

“This book is a fond remembrance of the seventies that will make the reader remember pet rocks, eight-track players, “Dancing Queens”, and first loves,” Frank Maraschiello said of his work. “As Nick is about to start high school, the height of the disco era’s mayhem overtakes him. The quick-changing morals and attitudes of the time go against all his innermost thoughts and feelings.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Frank Maraschiello confesses that there aspects of an alter-ego from his own teen years can be found in the character of Nick Carnavale.

“The fond remembrances from my teenage years and the people that influenced me the most prompted me to write my first novel,” Frank Maraschiello said.

Readers who wish to experience this love letter to a bygone era can purchase “Dress Jeans, Disco and Dating” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
