As an autobiography, “Waiting for Chester” relates the youthful adventures of the youngest member of an immigrant family. Arriving in Canada, from Europe in the early fifties and settling in an impoverished region of Hamilton Ontario, the author’s Family set forth to evolve a suitably comfortable lifestyle. The fateful coincidence of events that transpired through family, friends and fascinating acquaintances sends an innocently ignorant seven year old through an overwhelming journey toward maturity. This sometimes amusing cultivation toward adolescence proved ever more stimulating by his exposure to those magical high school years during the emergence of the Rock and Roll era. “Waiting for Chester” will remind us all of the chasteness of our youth and the morally wholesome side of our life.
