Brooklyn NY : A Grim Retrospective Review

Reviewed By: Crystal Trent Dotson

This amazing Memoir of Jerry Castaldo is by all means , inspiring , breathtaking , and yes , GRIM.

Being addicted to drugs and alcohol, which started as a teenager , he endured beatings , carwrecks , and gangs.  Wanting to get away from it all , he joins the Army , but is soon discharged , and is back where he started.  His drug addiction continued while trying to make himself a known singer , which didn’t mix well for Jerry. His life was full of up’s and down’s , mess up after mess up , he still continued to use drugs, causing him to lose friends , family , and job’s. After years of struggling , Jerry finally takes the first step of attending  an AA meeting. He has now been clean for twenty years.

This is such a shocking book , but it comes to show just how bad drug addiction can physically and mentally rip your life apart. Jerry went from nothing to finally fighting his addiction and becoming a touring singer, and being happy with his life.

Truely an amazing story.  But me , myself  after reading this memoir , Am very inspired by Jerry overcoming all the hell he was going through and coming out of it with a great story to be told.
