Susannah’s Spring, Summer Reading List, 2021
Pete Hamill died on Wednesday at the impressive age of 85.
He was everything I wanted to be as a writer: brave, passionate, prolific and humble, when people called out his name.
He was kind and gracious, and though already in his mid 70s, so damned alluring, still possessing that old-fashioned manly spark I’ve come to know and appreciate.
A man’s man, a lady’s knight, a self-made hero for any kid to look up to.
Originally from Brooklyn, raised by loving Irish parents, alongside siblings he stayed close to, married to a woman that, after years gone by, was still crazy about.
Godspeed Pete, and thanks. I’ll miss you.
About Susannah BianchiI'm just a girl who likes to write slightly on slant. I've had a career in fashion, dabbled in film and to be honest, I don't like talking about myself. Now my posts are another matter so I will let them speak for themselves. My eBooks, A New York Diary, Model Behavior: Friends For Life and Notes From A Working Cat can be found on Amazon.com. Thanks.
