CENTRAL, Calif. (PRWEB) February 13, 2012
The new memoir They Call Me Bubbins: Reflections in Time (published by iUniverse), by Bobby ORoark, recalls the childhood of a boy growing up in the Central Valley of California during the 1940s and 1950s. It offers a glimpse into the carefree lifestyle of that time, and juxtaposes it with what ORoark calls the ultra-busy lifestyle of today.
The story is told through the eyes of a boy called Bubbins:
In a few minutes I was able to start breathing again. A miracle, I thought to myself, and how wonderful it is to be able to breathe again. My life has been spared; but my tailbone was really hurting and then the worst part was, I had to deal with the humiliation. I limped past my two heartless sisters who were now holding their hands over their mouths to keep from laughing out loud, knowing they were within inches of sure death. All I could do at this point was to cast them my most venomous, Boy am I going to get you both look.
How come it always takes such a large slice of humble pie to keep one in touch with ones real self?
I think young readers will enjoy, perhaps with a bit of envy, the abandon, the freedom and seemingly carefree life of the boy, ORoark says. Older readers will find pleasure in indentifying with their own similar experiences, revisiting a time often called the good old days.
