More About George Bailey's Got Nothing on Me by Cy Holliday
 
 
 
Overview
Growing up on a traveling carnival and surrounded by a host of real life Damon Runyan and O Henry characters has proven to be a truly wonderful life. The author's paternal grandfather, father, and mother were instrumental in providing him a firm foundation for all of life's challenges. From Broadway to carnival midways to the Atlantic City Boardwalk, these stories speak of a simpler time, but the life lessons are as applicable today as they were in the past. Mom was a Broadway star who worked with all the big band leaders of the 1930s and '40s. Dad was a carnie that grew up during the depression and lived by his wits. Grandpa was a carnie and a prizefighter. They and their friends formed the basis of what became the author's life story, and a fascinating look at a different time in our country. Covering seven generations of the Holliday family from the 1700s to today, George Bailey's Got Nothing on Me takes the reader on a unique genealogic ride with characters that are far from perfect and certainly not "politically correct." Filled with individual triumphs and tragedies, it is as interesting a family memoir as you are likely to find.
