New York, NY (PRWEB) April 03, 2013
George Cannistraro, a former member of the Bronx based gang, The Wanderers, has completed his first book “After The Wanderers,” a gripping and potent account of life in uncertain and ever-changing times in the United States during the late 1960s.
Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Cannistraro’s poignant tale follows the life of Tony Canaro, whose world slowly unravels in light of catastrophic events. Of both grand and small proportions, Canaro faces the upturning of the status quo with which he was acquainted. With the Vietnam War and the protests surrounding it at the forefront, Canaro’s society was also in the midst of the African-American Civil Rights movement. In addition to these national crises, Canaro’s close friends and members of the gang, The Wanderers, have disbanded, and his girlfriend, Sandria, is pressuring Canaro to leave his old life behind him, and to start anew with her.
With the deaths of the peace proclaiming Martin Luther King, and Robert Kennedy, the United States are thrown into turmoil. Cannistraro uses the character, Canaro, as a vehicle through which the reader can navigate these trying times for the country, and the personal odyssey of one man in New York. However, the greater issue at hand is the life of Canaro and how he responds to the pressure from Sandria, to put his life on hold to go out west to California.
When asked why Mr. Cannistraro chose Page Publishing, he answered, "I could have never accomplished this without their help and guidance. Writing is hard, getting published is harder, but Page Publishing made it easy for me to turn my dream into a reality.”
Readers who wish to experience this mesmerizing work can purchase After The Wanderers at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
