Confessions of a Bronx Bookie by Billy O'Connor takes you on a wild ride starting in the 1950s in the Bronx, and to Vietnam and back again. Follow Connor Kelly as he goes through life; he is a gambler, addict, alcoholic, misogynist and lover of women. When he sees a problem he just jumps in with both feet and laughs. He has charmed Lady luck and has no interest in doing anything but living his life ... until it goes off the rails and he has to start a whole new life.
This is a fun, full throttle running book that puts the pedal down on page one and keeps on going through the entire book. I love a fun loving adventure and stories that start out in the 1950s just give me a big smile. You can't help but enjoy a bygone era when things were either more buttoned up or more let go and enjoy - depending on where you hang out. Connor is a let go and enjoy kinda guy! Billy O'Connor has written a book that is fun and has a great flow to it. If you want to read a story that is as real as it gets about a flawed man who could be any one of us out in the world, this is the book for you, and you will truly enjoy it. Dig in and spend some time with a flawed human being who has a great story to tell.
