5.0 out of 5 stars Another Claremonter 1 July 2014
By Daniel Stoughton - Published on Amazon.com
A trip down memory lane. As a 1948 graduate of Stevens High School, my memories preceded Joe's by nine years. This book was both a remembrance of my times in Claremont and a discovery of what had changed since I left. Anyone who has spent any amount of time in and about Claremont will enjoy it. Well written and addictive. A must read!
5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful Read 24 Jun. 2014
By Alan Jay Rom - Published on Amazon.com
I have known Joe Steinfield for many years and have marveled at his story-telling. Often it was about the law, as we worked on cases together. But, his story-telling here is not about the law, but about his life. He grew up in New Hampshire, but the stories take him to his grandparents lives in the "Old Country" to New York and elsewhere. The book consists of vignettes that he composed for newspaper articles and for himself. His stories are funny, witty, and ones that each of us has, in one way or another, experienced. They are about family, human foibles, and ironic experiences. Reading them will give impulses to the reader to want to record his/her own stories about and for family and friends. Each of the stories has a title and each title has the connector, "and." As illustrated by the title, the "and" connects what otherwise would seem to be disparate subjects - but they are not; they are very much connected as only this gifted story-teller can relate. His past is thus connected to the present. Though Joe has been a prominent trial lawyer in Boston for many years, his roots are in a small town in New Hampshire and he has maintained and nurtured them throughout this book. I bought it as soon as it was in the bookstore and I couldn't put it down until I finished it. I am waiting until he reduces more of his stories to a sequel. Alan Jay Rom
5.0 out of 5 stars My Hometown 25 Jun. 2014
By Maureen O'Donnell - Published on Amazon.com

I think almost anyone who grew up in Claremont would enjoy this book--but so would other people! Joe is a great writer, and I have begged him to write another book, an in-depth story of the immigrant experience. In this current book, Joe's stories are "human", meaning everyone can relate to them, they are part of the human experience.
When reading these stories, it is important to remember that each story was a newspaper column--this is not a novel with a continuous plot. I read a lot of books, and the best ones are when I can identify, either with a character, a feeling or an experience. Because Joe is such a good story-teller, it is very easy to identify.
5.0 out of 5 stars Big City Lawyer Remembers Life in a Small Town 6 July 2014
By Book Worm - Published on Amazon.com

Joe Steinfield doesn't need a thousand pages to tell a story. In a series of concise articles, he describes encounters with greats (Duke Ellington, Dom DiMaggio, Daniel Ellsberg) and near-greats like his teachers, Dick Morris, and the man responsible for Boston's annual Christmas tree. He pays tribute to Jewish ancestors who emigrated from Poland, landed in Chelsea, Massachusetts, and trekked westward to Claremont, New Hampshire. He describes travels with his wise and talented wife The Pianist. Best of all, his memories capture the spirt of growing up in America, where the game was baseball, the language, English, with some Yiddish, and life was "wonderful".
5.0 out of 5 stars I have enjoyed reading the many stories and recalling fine memories evoked ... 1 July 2014
By Rod Tenney - Published on Amazon.com
"Claremont Boy" captures the essence of growing up in Claremont, NH, attending Stevens High School, and marching in an inaugural parade in the 1950's - and much more. I have enjoyed reading the many stories and recalling fine memories evoked by Joe's stories. These stories will remind many of their experiences growing up in small town America. For those not so fortunate, the stories will provide insight on what it was really like to have that experience.
