Traveling into the past can be exhausting. It can also be exhilarating. Preparation for this kind of travel may require spending years thinking about it, even agonizing over it. You ask yourself endless questions: Should I go? Why should I go? Was the past too long ago? What if I go and there's nothing there? Finally I go, and I uncover a wealth of stories ... one major car wreck, small talk about sex, a tale of two guns, and not a hint of regret... Woody Allen, Brigitte Bardot, Buddy Hackett ... and pop singer Neil Sedaka's mother turn up in these pages. And there's a confession about a theft connected to one of them. So Long, Betty and Veronica recalls a dying Borscht Belt culture, ancient bungalow colonies, and burned-down hotels in the Catskills. It's the coming of age story of a New York City boy spending summers in the country. The journey transforms lost experience and integrates it into the present. In a curious way, going back enriches the path forward. So Long, Betty and Veronica is a celebration of people whose wealth of character and generosity of spirit made the past possible.

About the Author:

If you spent long summers growing up with a large cast of colorful personalities in Catskill Mountain bungalow colonies, or if you worked the epic kitchens and dining halls of Catskill Mountain Hotels, this story is your story. So Long, Betty and Veronica is a first-hand tour of an epic culture and dramatically recalled world known as the Borsht Belt. This is the Catskill Mountain story you always wanted to write. 
Decades after living and working a lifetime of summers in the Catskills Mountains the author returns. He revisits mountain roads in search of places long remembered and now long gone. His experience brings him to touch, taste, smell, and see the past. Until he has to leave. Lou Ferreri is an artist, writer, former educator living in St. Paul, Minnesota.
