About this title


Johnny K Heading Home is an exciting, sometimes humorous, and always fast moving story of a kid growing up in a "loving," albeit dysfunctional, family. A friend said I should have called it: Leave it to Beaver Meets Bart Simpson.

From the Author:

My father was a great joke teller - remembering every joke he ever heard - and he had hundreds in his repertoire. He was a great entertainer. I, on the other hand, could never remember a single joke. But I remembered stories about my childhood, and I told and retold them to all the new people I would meet. Everybody loved my stories, and I was often told, "You ought to write a book." I am not a "writer." I am a storyteller, and this book is a story. It is a true story of a kid (that's me) growing up in a dysfunctional, albeit highly respected, family. My mom and dad viewed themselves as perfect parents. Mom was president of the PTA and a ballet teacher. Her highly successful Peter Pan School of Ballet attracted many of the town's well-to-do and cultural elite. Mom was a brilliant kid and graduated high school at age fifteen, a fact that she always seemed to weave into any conversation about homework or my lack of achievement as a student. Dad was a highly paid commercial illustrator and, later in life, painter. He was elected president of the Phoenix Gallery in New York City after a super-successful one-man show he had there. This book is a collection of memories, and the chronology of them is sometimes arbitrary. I did, however (for the most part), try to keep them in a progressive order, only occasionally meandering through time. Most of the names have been changed so I wouldn't get in trouble.
