Carl Buccellato on Turning the Page

When Carl Buccellato was clearing old files out from his garage, he came across boxes of journals and scribbles that served as a means of capturing memories. At the urging of his wife, Buccellato compiled his various papers and drafted a single book of them.

To Every Page A Turning: One Life’s Journey, is a fictitious story that leans heavily on Buccellato’s personal experiences. Born and raised in an Italian household in Brooklyn, Buccellato grew up as the child of an alcoholic in near-poverty conditions, but eventually experienced great success as an adult, despite medical struggles that left him dealing with divorce and substance abuse. 

“While many will read it as a biography of the author, it is not,” said Buccellato. “In my mind, it is more of a historical novel depicting the lives and impact of the generation following World War II, and through the remainder of the twentieth century. It is a composite of many people and events over several decades.”
