Overview

Boogie Days by Arc

Rudy is a twelve-year-old boy living in the big city with his great-aunt. His world is suddenly turned upside down, when one day his mother shows up and whisks him away to live with an aunt, in a small mining town, some 90 miles upriver, in a tropical rain forest. Rudy struggles to fit into this religiously conservative society. The dangers of the environment, youthful romances, and a tyrannical household in which he finds himself, all make for a hilarious, often-times tense, and sometimes poignant story. You will be rooting for this unlikely and irresistible hero throughout Boogie Days-a powerful, highly entertaining novel.

About the Author

Albert R. Cumberbatch, Ph. D, is a native of Guyana, a small, English-speaking country on the northern coast of South America. On migrating to the United States, he settled in Boston to attend the University of Massachusetts, where he graduated with bachelor degrees in biology and psychology. He likes to say he spent over half of his life in a high school science classroom, and most of his life as an environmentalist. Along the way, Dr. Cumberbatch earned an MA (Ed) and a Ph.D (Env. Ed.). He decided to finally write "to put the demons in his head, yearning to break free, down on paper." This is his first novel. Dr. Cumberbatch currently resides in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

This book tells a captivating tale of some young folks growing up in a very religiously conservative mining town that is on the verge of cataclysmic change. It's very funny, poignant and dramatic at times. A must read. Excellent.

I read books to enjoy an emotional, intellectual, and spiritual experience. Mr. Cumberbatch's new novel, "Boogie Days," fills all of my criteria, as it takes you on a wild ride of experiences; from the depth of an abyss to triumphant mountains tops, as Rudy-a young man you will come to admire and respect-triumphs over many obstacles, including death. This book will become an oft-read friend as you rejoice in Rudy's indomitable will and perseverance as he grows from boyhood to manhood; and hope for a sequel as soon as possible.
