The True Story of Charles Falzone and Catherine Brogan-Falzone

Most of us as Americans know all about war; by watching TV or going to school or to the movies. Our history books and the foundation of our country were built on war. You could say that Americans are fascinated with war and the history of wars, believe it or not most of us will never be in a war. Our armed forces are there for you to enlist in or be drafted into in case of war. Only a small percent of us actually fought in our wars, except our civil war, which took only American lives.

This is a true story of a love between a young man and a much older woman. A love that defied all odds and would make two people feel each other’s thoughts even when they were miles and time apart. One that could cause them to hear the ring of a silent phone. It would create such a power that they would feel a physical pull to each other no matter where they were.

There were things that happened between them that could not be logically explained and would cause them to ask each other, “How do we do that?”

When you read this book, I hope you can feel the love they had for each other.

Tired of reading another celebrity chef story? Bored with those too-perky and out of touch with reality 25-minute meal makers? Cynical about the rags-to-riches kings who’s restaurant empires span the globe, never fail, and where everything turns to gold? Here is the first honest account of real life in the restaurant business, with all the joys and frustrations and madcap situations, plus more that you can never predict!

This is the heartfelt, incredible story of restauranteur Maria Bragalini, who owned and successfully ran three different dining establishments in New York City in the 1950’s and later, a time when dining out was an entirely different type of experience. Amidst the backdrop of a still-bohemian Greenwich Village, then later an upper-crust Rockefeller Center hot spot, and finally a quaint quiet upper east side locale, Maria takes us on a journey of not just culinary delight, but of joys, sorrows, loves, trials and tribulations involving her loyal patrons who became good friends.

Hear firsthand how Maria, a former fashion designer, went up against the authorities when they denied her liquor license and tried to stop this young woman from becoming a success. Listen to tales of the barons and business powerhouses who came to enjoy pasta and veal dishes at Maria’s tables, and stayed for more than the food. Learn about the mystical powers of Table #8, and revel in the beautiful descriptive interior design techniques that Maria used to transform each space from disastrous to exquisitely beautiful and comfortable cucinas. The story of the Purple Martini will leave you wondering for days about its secret ingredient. Meet Brag, her husband and partner forever, as they turn each place into successful culinary hot spots, through love and the magical “cin-cin” philosophy.

Living on the track for four years was a unique experience for me. It was rewarding to be able to help those less fortunate human beings. I was able to care for my husband while we gained knowledge of the various places we were assigned to work. I was protected by my faithful guard dog Princess.

The love and attention I gave to the track gang was returned to me one hundred fold.

When I left to move into a house it was like turning the page to a new chapter in my life. There were no loose ends and nothing to go back for.

We had travelled from the mountains to the seashore and the valleys to the deserts. Most of the time we were near one of the many packing sheds. This was my one chance in life to see the beauty of the state of California.

This is the true story of Ron Gebo, born in Norwich, Connecticut. His life started out with complications during his birth. When the doctor asked his father who did he want to save, if it came down to it, he told the doctor, “Save my wife.” To say the least Ron’s family was dysfunctional, many broken homes, having moved sixteen times, in sixteen years and countless different schools. Ron developed very bad behavior traits, living mostly in Danielson, Connecticut, which was a borough of Killingly. Danielson was a depressed town in the 1960s and 70s when this young man was growing up. The mills that once produced fruitfully were now closed or closing. Unemployment was sky high, along with alcoholism and drug abuse. As you read this book you will be able to see what makes a delinquent with the nickname of Ronster the Monster.
