Descrizione prodotto


"Victor Wayne and Shirley Siegal are 14 year old Von Steuben high school freshmen, living in the predominately Jewish neighborhood of Chicago’s Albany Park, in 1945. Follow the twists and turns of their lives in the 1940’s, 50’s and into the 90’s as they take you through the familiar Chicago and Florida locations.
Though “Albany Park” is a work of fiction, it is based on many actual events as it describes lifestyles of the characters and the era."


Myles (Mickey) Golde is a lifelong resident of Chicago and the city's northern suburbs. A graduate of the public school system, he went on to receive a JD from the John Marshall Law School in 1955. Following two years in the Army and a short stint as an attorney, Mr. Golde went into the sanitary maintenance business with his brother. In 1998 they sold their company OSS Inc. the largest Food Plant Sanitation Contractor in the Midwest to Omni Inc. a national service contractor. Mickey and Nancy, his wife of fifty nine years, reside in Highland Park, Illinois and Boca Raton, Florida. They have three children, Bradley, Michael and Leslie, and three grandchildren, Quinn, Lilia and Lucy Belle. Prior to writing Albany Park, Mr. Golde wrote many human interest stories for the Lerner Papers of Chicago and other local publications.

4.0 su 5 stelle Would Anyone But Us Read This Book? 9 febbraio 2014
Di M. Bernstein - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Yes, well like everyone who posted/and or read this book, I grew up in Albany Park. When the book opens on VJ day in August, 1945 I was 9 years old, awaiting my 10th birthday in Nov. And I was (here's another book title) Hudson Lake, Indiana. My mother was in South Bend, Indiana that day and she reported that South Bend was in the streets.

As others have explained, when the book opens, the central characters are (I'm guessing here) around 14 and are freshmen at Von Steuben HS (I attended Roosevelt).

Victor Wayne and Shirley Siegel are on again/off again friends/strangers/lovers. Mickey uses a clever literary device to move the story by juxtaposing Victor's and Shirley's lives as they move on from HS and adolescence into adulthood and middle age. Both are successful but in different ways.

Although the book is entitled, ALBANY PARK, the story does not stay, i.e., this is not a story about Albany Park, but is about the characters who start their lives in the neighborhood and go on from there. As another poster noted, the book has, sex, pols, gangsters, corrupt union bosses - hmm, did I miss anyone?

Where Mickey really succeeds in that he traces the migration of a segment of the Chicago Jewish Community from the West Side in the '20's and '30's into Albany Park in the '30's, '40's and '50's and thence into the Northern Suburbs. Some, however became snowbirds and moved on to Florida.

I, however moved on to California.

I never leave negative reviews on books. My thoughts are that everyone has their own likes/dislikes in reading. But this book was so horrible I just had to warn others about it.
I was born and raised in Albany Park (50's, 60's, 70's). In fact, I lived on Albany Avenue.
There was very little reference to Albany Park as it's defined in Chicago city parameters. A better title might have been 'North Side of Chicago'. There were references to a few of the familiar streets and establishments, but most were not in Albany Park.
Furthermore, the writing was horrible and difficult to read. English teachers would be sick if they read this book. I can't even count how many words were spelled incorrectly, and the punctuation errors were horrendous.
I can understand a few typos in a book, but this one was rife with errors.
One example (I'm paraphrasing here) 'He loved her with his heart and sole'. Really? He loved her with the bottom of his foot?
Finally, almost every character had an awful habit of 'licking their lips'. It was grossing me out, but every two or three pages someone would be 'licking their lips'.
I definitely do NOT recommend this book for anyone.

You probably do not have to be from Albany Park or Chicago to understand the stories in this book. It helps to be from Chicago to understand the neighborhood references. The story is, at times, surprising. My sister said: "It's a good effort for a first book." It's not really my cup of tea (I don't like so many semi-graphic sex scenes), but I am from Chicago and do want to see what happens at the end of the book. I have a hundred pages left.

I'd recommend it to people who like romance novels.

Well, I found the book entitled "Albany Park" most intersting since I grew up in Albany Park just a few years later than the book describes. It was like going home with all the mentions of various high school hangouts, my high school, and local restaurants, etc. Something like film noir. I'm only 1/2 way through so this review is limited. I'm not sure that if you didn't live there you'd be able to see it in the same light as I.

Having lived in Albany Park for the first eleven years of my life, I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It was a "walk down memory lane" for me in many ways. I went to Hibbard Elementary and Von Steuben High School, and remember so many of the other places mentioned in this novel. It was definitely a good mix of fact and fiction!
