From eating delicious spanakopita and other Greek delights prepared in his mother's home kitchen, to treacherous bicycle hill climbing and frightening high diving, Michael Skopes whisks you away to his idyllic childhood in 1950s-60s Morris, Illinois.

As seen through the eyes of a maturing first generation Greek boy, My Little Skinny Greek Life paints a multi-faceted picture of immigrants adapting to life in Middle America with both success and failure. Skopes relates how his parents brought rich traditions in language, religion, and family to the United States from their ancestral roots in the rugged, northern mountains of Greece, giving Skopes and his sisters the rich opportunity to blend the old with the new.

His collection of dramatic and comedic escapades is flavored with fun, courage, and just plain ol' childhood recklessness. Whether catching his first professional baseball game at Chicago's Comiskey Park, heading out to grab a gallon of chocolate ripple or chocolate chip ice cream on Sunday evenings, or reenacting the Civil War on the Franklin School playground during recess, Skopes relates his tales with the warm glow of nostalgia.

Witty, sparkling, and rich with the memories of yesteryear, My Little Skinny Greek Life takes you back to the good old days and the glorious possibilities of youth.
