Engaging and fast paced, Pass the Jelly will have you laughing through a wild ride filled with unforgettable characters. Poignant and often hysterical memories from the author's 1970s New England childhood combine with outrageous present day interactions in an irreverent, charming journey as the author relates the insights he gathers along the way. The reader is challenged and entertained by a philosophy of life that is a welcome contrast to today's conventional wisdom. Genuine and heartfelt, the stories will stick with you long after you finish the book.
