From the Forward By Composer/Writer David Amram (www.davidamram.com): "It is a pleasure to sit in a quiet place and read "Galleria" by John Petrolino. Many of these poems I have heard while accompanying John in readings we have done together, but even if I didn't know or ever have had the chance to hear his outstanding renditions of his own work, I could hear his voice just by reading what he put down on paper. His poems, a reflection of what he is all about...young, talented, eager to live each day to the fullest and share what he has with others. Like two other merchant seamen who influenced my earlier life, my uncle David Amram and Jack Kerouac, John Petrolino's poetry expresses the introspection and keen observation that all who go to sea develop in their writing. Like Jack London and Herman Melville, he knows how to tell a story and make you feel part of it. Can hardly wait for his next collection!!"
