This essay and several others can be found in Revere Beach Elegy: A Memoir of Home and Beyond.
Michael Upchurch of the Seattle Times said "Revere Beach Elegy is an autobiography in 10 essays that is sublimely refreshing in its love and generosity. Merullo's prose, as he outlines the worlds he cherishes, has a luminous subtlety that brings alive rich layers of feeling in an immediate intelligible manner. His eye stays intently trained on how we guide ourselves through life."
"Revere Beach Elegy is a smart and moving meditation on social class, boundaries and mobility...and much more," said Ray Suarez of NPR and The Washington Post.
And, the Chicago Tribune had this to say about the memoir, "Merullo has a knack for rendering emotional complexities, paradoxes, or impasses in a mere turn of the phrase."

Not what I expected
I listened to all the "Buddha" books by Roland Merullo. I loved his voice and the ability to speak accents. I was quite shocked at the Boston accent, lack of chapters, and the nature of this book. (My husband purchased it based on the author and reader). This book is the author's memory and thoughts regarding his father. I felt as though I was listening to pages from his diary. His writing is intriguing. I enjoyed listening to the book and appreciate his sharing his family with us. I would recommend this book.
