A Golf Caddy Growing Up
4 May 2009 - Published on Amazon.com
Jim Mooney, 17, is growing up in a small Jersey town about 40 miles west of New York. He caddies at the local golf course. He hangs out with the other caddies. Much of their spare time is spent drinking and playing cards. Some are young as he is. Others are much older. Jim constantly thinks of "getting bare tit." His brother Matt is three years older. He has dropped out of college and sometimes caddies as well. Matt's parents are upset with him for quitting school. Matt is staying in a rooming house. The book covers their adventures as well as a romance for each of the brothers. The time frame of the book is late 1960's during the Vietnam war. Ultimately Matt is drafted and sent overseas. He does not return. A good fast moving quick read.
A great novel for anyone

This novel was incredible... it will have you laughing one minute...on the verge of tears the next. It helps if you've played golf and you're a guy, but it's also about much more than just that - it explores life and youth and what we do to try and get through each day. I highly recommend this treasure of a novel.
Awesome in every way!

Simply the best novel I have ever read. As a former and current caddy who grew up in the late 1960s and early 70s, it struck a chord with me as no other book ever has. I have read it about seven times. Funny thing that I just thought about on this last read, there is a connection to Bruce Springsteen's New Jersey here! Growing up in Jersey's heartland, the complexities of being Catholic, class distinctions, and a summer vacation on the Jersey shore! Wonderful stuff. Wish he wrote another novel, but as far as I know this was his first and only one.
An outstanding fictional memoir.

A diamond in the rough. If you have ever caddied, I guarantee you will enjoy this book. And, if you ever caddied in the late 60's during the Viet Nam war, it is an absolute must read. It will take you back there in an almost eerie way. The writing is that good. It's a keeper.
