TEN STORIES TO MANHOOD, by Jonathan Maniscalco

Achingly raw and beautifully written, coming-of-age tales, set in the picturesque Cape Cod and Boston area. The insights into a boy growing up, looking for positive, masculine, role models, chronicled through ten sequential short stories. Author delves into the personalities of his characters, bringing them to life through dialogues, internal mono-logues, and emotional responses, rather than actions. 

“Ten Stories to Manhood” has recharged my interest in the short story… Readers will muse on their own thoughts and observations, then want to read the stories over again. I hope Maniscalco will share Clarke’s future life with us.” (James Ring, author of Necessary Assets)

"'Forget it--you can't understand.' And no one can explain it to you. You have to figure out how this life works on your own. And  in 'Ten Stories to Manhood,' Jonathan Maniscalo takes us on one kid's journey to figure it out for himself the hard way."(Chuck MacLean,  writer for the Showtime series: City on a Hill)

“An utterly charming and thoughtful meditation on the transition of a protagonist from youth to adulthood.” (Stevan V. Nikolic, author of Truth According to Michael)
