More About This Book

Overview

Seasons in Sanctuary

Friends of the book say:

"Lopriore has terrific understanding of what makes a good story. He can write like hell, but he's even better at digging up stuff nobody else knows. Should have been a CIA guy instead of a reporter."

Maury Allen, longtime New York Post sportswriter, author of "Brooklyn Remembered","Where Have You Gone (Joe DiMaggio)".

"With "Season in Sanctuary", Danny Lopriore not only conveys a remarkable true story of personal faith and redemption, but he's also beautifully crafted a love letter to a special place in time. With rich detail, he recreates the experience of growing up in the 1970s working-class, school-of-hard-knocks outskirts of the greatest city in the world. You can practically smell the bread baking over New York's Arthur Avenue with every turn of the page."

Scott Williams, writer/producer, "Without a Trace", "Bones", "Third Watch".

"Lopriore is able to come from a very real and true place. He puts you right into the life of this complex man. His unique take on this drama is a credit not only to his writing style, but to his commitment to telling this story with a passion that comes from witnessing a story first hand. The story could not be told better by anyone."

Jason Cerbone, actor, "The Sopranos"

"A gripping narrative with fascinating characters. The details of time and place are so vivid and compelling that one has to be reminded that this is fiction and not true story. The author reels you in and doesn't let go until the novel's powerful conclusion.

Angelo Pizzo, screenwriter/producer, "Hoosiers", "Rudy"

    Interesting take on crime and redemption

    Unusually written -- first-person approach to a story. Loved the background and description of old neighborhoods, childhood flashbacks and game action.

    Seasons in Sanctuary: Based on a true Fantasy

    If this is at least half true -- it's a book that could help change lives -- the story proves we should use our talents no matter what.

    Seasons in Sanctuary: Based on a true Fantasy

    I thought 'Seasons' was a uniquely written book -- unlike like most sports books it has human insight. The story is exciting and touching -- about a gangster type who goes through a life-changing experience.

    A Great read

    Danny Lopriore has written a wonderful book, combining a story about the good/bad within us all. Very nostalgic for those of us that grew up in that era and in the Yonkers area.I hope to read more from this author !!

    Seasons in Sanctuary: Based on a true Fantasy

    This book could be one of the most interesting reads I've experienced -- not because it is great writing persay -- but because it is so real in it's dialog and descriptions of life in NYC in the 1970s and smacks of the author's intimate knowledge of the subject. Seasons in Sanctuary would make a great movie.

    Seasons in Sanctuary: Based on a true Fantasy

    I found Seasons in Sanctuary to be a very interesting and quick read -- a book anyone might want to read on a long weekend or trip. It is an exciting account of a messed up guy who has a gift and gets to use it after years of failure. I think teens will love this book.

    This book relates the desire of a man to find his true heart after having made too many wrong choices. It gives us all hope that we have a calling and we can only be happy when we find who we are.
