Read full description of the books Squandered Prayers:Coming of age in a cramped New York tenement, with a mentally-damaged mother who continually threatens to kill herself, is not easy for nineteen-year-old Dean Cassidy. Having a hot-headed father who goes berserk every time he throws one of his frequent maniacal tirades doesn't help either. Nevertheless, Dean is deeply in love with his girlfriend, and he wants so badly to show her off to his parents. Twice he brings her home, and both times the two kids witness scenes they will never forget.
Squandered Prayers is based on Tom Winton's internationally acclaimed bestselling novel Beyond Nostalgia.
Read information about the authorIt has been said in the Winton family that the day Tom was born a ferocious blizzard bore down on New York City. And that while in labor, his mother--her head down alongside his father--forged her way through near-blinding white snow to a Queens subway station where the two boarded a train to a Manhattan hospital. It has also been said that the doctor who later that day delivered Tom had to smack him on the behind three times before he'd cry.
At the only PTA meeting his parents ever attended, his third grade teacher told them, "Tommy can do anything he wants to. But he must be pushed." But Tommy didn't like to be pushed. And some things never change. He has always been a free spirit--doing what he wanted, when he wanted. As a result of his adventuresome nature, he's lived a life of erratic twists and turns. And that is what today gives him a bottomless well of experiences to draw from when he sits down to write novels.
Winton has done everything from pounding spikes on a rowdy railroad gang in the Colorado Rockies to driving a taxicab in some of New York City's most dangerous neighborhoods. He's also been a Manhattan sales executive, a ditch digger/pipe installer in Florida, a house painter on Long Island, a go-for in Maine, an entrepreneur and a host of other things. Along with his wife and their Jack Russell Terrier, Ginger, he now lives a more toned down life somewhere in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains.
