Guinea Bastard: Personal Essays by Joe Pagetta
Guinea Bastard
Guinea Bastard collects personal essays by the New Jersey-born, Nashville-residing Joe Pagetta, both published and unpublished. They’re about growing up Italian American in Jersey City and falling in love with rock music (especially the band Queen); about the promise and failings of marriage and the dreams and realities of making music; about reconciling with a father who can be abusive and caring for a mother who has dementia. Mostly, they’re about growing and changing and becoming, in ways we all understand.
