From the Publisher:

Read this book for a touching, brutal, hilarious book about growing up in Hell's Kitchen in the 50's. I didn't get a chance to meet the author until years after we had published this book. The occassion of our meeting was a dinner in New York to discuss his new book, SLEEPERS. I had read SLEEPERS the night before, was totally blown away by it and predicted at dinner that night that SLEEPERS would go on to be a New York Times hardcover bestseller .. which it did!! It couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. If you've already read SLEEPERS, read A SAFE PLACE to learn more about the man. If you haven't read SLEEPERS, read this one anyway...a fine book by a special guy.
Mark Bloomfield, Ballantine Sales

From the Inside Flap:

"Dramatic, graphic and wrenching...The reader is left to wonder--at the devastation of Carcaterra's youth, at his survival to adulthood, and at the grace that allowed him to craft this piercing memoir."
THE WASHINGTON POST
Lorenza Carcaterra grew up in Hell's Kitchen, New York in the 1950s and '60s in a confusing world of love and fear of his paradoxically violent and affectionate father. Then Lorenzo learned that his father had murdered his first wife. And he wondered how he could love his father again. Did he possess the same murderous fury; would he someday suddenly lash out at those he loved? As his father's physical abuse escalated, Lorenzo sought frantically for a safe place...a place where he could find hope and reconciliation and peace, where his father's terrible shadow no longer lingered. Now, decades later, Lorenzo has finally come to terms with the awful truth about his father. A SAFE PLACE is the brilliant result.
