Growing Up Catholic in the Twentieth Century: A 1940s - 1950s Memoir, S. P. Perone, iUniverse, 2021, 482 pages. Softcover, ISBN: 978-1-6632-0917-7. $28.99. Hardcover, ISBN: 978-1-6632-1742-4. $39.99. E-book, ISBN: 978-1-6632-0916-0. $3.99.

Offering a glimpse of life during World War II America and the following decade, a young man comes of age through a series of poignant, often humorous, misadventures.

Simultaneously nurtured and tortured by his Italian-Catholic immigrant culture, he finds a way to navigate through parochial school fear and guilt, wartime and cold war angst, economic hardship, and sexual repression—until emerging from the cultural bubble in which he was nurtured into a daunting real world.

This dialogue-driven, first-person account is a true story that unfolds like a novel—a nostalgic, mid-century journey.
