Going Back to Move Forward is the author's fictional tale rooted in his own childhood experience. John Sponcia has spent much of his adult life comparing current life in America to the 1960s, a bygone era that he recalls as idyllic. He has secretly longed to somehow return to that time period, if even for a short time to once again experience a lifestyle he so fondly remembers. In this novella, he is thrust back to 1960, arriving in his childhood neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York at his current age of sixty-four. He is faced with numerous internal struggles as he confronts his past life. Now, he is an outsider desperately seeking to reconcile his compelling need to return to an era to which he has been unwittingly transported. Each chapter chronicles this journey back in time, with a progression of events that results in a stunning climax.PLEASE NOTE: AUTHOR IS DONATING ALL PROFITS/ROYALTIES FROM THIS BOOK'S SALES TO 'THE WOUNDED WARRIOR PROJECT', AN ORGANIZATION THAT SUPPORTS AND ASSISTS WOUNDED VETERANS AND THEIR FAMILIES!!!
