According to Richard Krassen, "I owe my life to the city of Philadelphia." Breadcrumbs on My Journey is set in the City of Brotherly Love, the life-long anchor of his universe. In this revealing memoir, he reflects on his love for music, basketball, and family, sharing novel insights on what it means to be a son, husband, father, grandfather, and teammate. Beyond his sharp and often humorous memories, septuagenarian Krassen offers original poetry, aphorisms, and a story about his alter ego as a life insurance salesman. Although this entire endeavor took many years, the results are well worth it, and readers are sure to enjoy and be inspired by this proud Philadelphian.Krassen has actually produced two memoirs, a candid account of his personal journey, and an unflinching guide to Philadelphia and how it's been over the last three quarters of a century. If you start reading, you won't stop. At least I didn't.--Mike Jensen, 30-year sportswriter, Philadelphia InquirerRich Krassen's Lincoln team and my Overbrook squad played each other at The Palestra in the 1958 Philadelphia public high school league semi-final game. We are fraternity brothers in basketball, stickball, and doo wop. I love his memoir, both serious and humorous, as it recaptures the good old days. --Wali Jones, former NBA player, director of Shoot for the StarsWith fast-paced, light-hearted vignettes, Krassen presents a delicious Catcher in the Rye for members of the "Lost Generation," (b. 1930-1946), a generation that's been maligned, if not ignored by history. Krassen's often hilariously detailed and self-deprecating memoir reminds readers that perseverance prevails and the 1950s weren't so "bland" after all.--Thomas J. Carey, author, Witness to Roswell, and Inside the Real Area 51A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to the Make a Wish Foundation.
