FRAMILY (friends considered family) is historical sports fiction at its finest!

The third installment of the Lou Saulino trilogy about three friends from childhood combines the world of sports and friendship in a unique way.

The saga began with “8” Center field in New York, 1951-1957 as three thirteen year old best buddies debate the attributes of Willie Mays, Mickey Mantle and Duke Snider, and is followed by Dopey Bastid,  as the now early thirties adults reflect on the dumb decisions they have either read about or witnessed personally.

What they're saying

“Saulino has developed a smart way of storytelling via weaving his characters’ plotlines together with contemporary sports events……The book is also immaculately researched, vividly recalling each play of each game like a great sports announcer.”

KIRKUS Review

“the sports discussions are authentic and entertaining. Too bad Saulino is a NY Giant fan.”

Marty Lyons. Former NY Jets All-Pro defensive lineman

“the power of friendship is worth going to bat for."

Geoffrey Berwind, professional storytelling consultant

“Recalling the special sports moments Saulino brilliantly describes in FRAMILY was a joy.”
