The Boys from Eighth and Carpenter

2015 INDIES Winner
Silver, LGBT (Adult Fiction)

As small children, brothers Michael and Frankie Gagliano are bound by love but a promise to their dying mother. Long after she dies, that promise will be put to the test when Frankie commits a crime that is disturbingly out of character for such a kind and sensitive man. THE BOYS FROM EIGHTH AND CARPENTER follows the brothers from inseparable children to vastly different yet indelibly linked middle-aged men. As they change, for better and worse, Philadelphia and the neighborhood does the same.
