Joseph Gulesserian has a lot to talk about.  About 50 + years worth.  Reading Newspaper Boys Always Delivery is like sitting next to someone who has very strong opinions about well, pretty much everything – from Cat Woman’s costume to platform shoes worn by disco-goers (is that a word?).
I enjoyed the historical aspects of Joseph’s book – they brought back quite a few memories, especially since I grew up during the same time period.  I would do my own research since as many of the events he described piqued my curiosity.  However, this book was exhausting! It was as if 50 years of history was being crammed into one small volume (along with the author’s personal memories and observations).  Added to the fact that the language used to write the book switched continuously back and forth from informal to formal English with “high-sounding” dictionary word liberally interlaced throughout, it was really hard to read more than a few pages at a time.
I appreciate all the research and work that went into this book.  A reader who is a history buff with a tolerance for abrasive comments would probably get a kick out of reading this personal journey into pop culture.
