College Street is a quasi-pseudo biography of all the people, places, and events the author took for granted as a child and teenager, but now wishes he could revisit and replay at will. His vivid descriptions, through the eyes of a young child and teenager, bring this once fledgling neighborhood to life. Dominated by the Portuguese and the Italians, the area was a continual confusion of weddings, funerals, feasts, and processions. When you include the endless array of family events, obligation, dinners, and a required clandestine trip to Italy, life for Bruno was a boiling cauldron of what today's multicultural fashionistas like to call "a cultural experience."
