Elvis Presley was celebrity's perfect storm. His sole but substantial contribution was talent, a fact Charles L. Ponce de Leon is careful to demonstrate throughout his wonderfully contextual Fortunate Son. Even as the moments of lucidity necessary to exercise that talent grew rarer and rarer, Elvis proved his musical gifts right up to the end of his life. Beyond that, however, he was fortune's child. Fortunate Son succinctly traces out the larger shifts that repeatedly redefined the cultural landscape during the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s, using Elvis's life to present a brief history of American popular culture during these tumultuous decades.

In spite of remarkable differences, Eric and Tommy are as close as brothers. Eric, a Nordic Adonis, is graced by a seemingly endless supply of good fortune. Tommy is a lame black boy, cursed with health problems, yet he remains optimistic and strong.After tragedy rips their makeshift family apart, the lives of these boys diverge astonishingly: Eric, the golden youth, is given everything but trusts nothing; Tommy, motherless and impoverished, has nothing, but feels lucky every day of his life. In a riveting story of modern-day resilience and redemption, the two confront separate challenges, and when circumstances reunite them years later, they draw on their extraordinary natures to confront a common enemy and, ultimately, save their lives.

Patrick Golden is a student at Berkeley during the turbulent and vibrant late 1960s. The product of working-class Jewish and Irish-Catholic parents, he takes a huge step out of his social comfort zone when he makes the move to the storied walls of the Ivy League. Soon he’s surrounded by old-moneyed aristocrats as he joins his affluent and socially well-connected college roommate, Charles Comstock, at Harvard in the summer of 1968. At Harvard, Patrick meets Morgan Thackeray, a stunningly beautiful and free-spirited coed from one of Boston’s oldest, wealthiest, and stodgiest families. Despite her bigoted father’s virulent objections and threats, their romance blooms—until it is torn apart by the dark secret Morgan must keep from Patrick. To protect him, she disappears, leaving his heart in tatters without an explanation or even a good-bye. Forty-one years later, Patrick finds himself back in Boston on sad business—the funeral of his old college roommate, Charles. In a twist he could never have predicted, he reconnects with his long-lost love. After decades of doubt and confusion, he’s about to learn her secret—and his life will be dramatically altered by her confession. Vividly describing Harvard, Berkeley, and San Francisco as they were in the late 1960s, No Fortunate Son recreates the sights, sounds, mood, and culture that defined this colorfully tumultuous and politically pivotal era. Barbara Keer, Editor of Chicago Splash Magazine, Splash Magazines Worldwide It isn’t often that I find a book I can’t put down and feel a loss when I finish because the characters have become my friends. No Fortunate Son is that kind of book.I found the book interesting in several ways: as a first novel, as an example both of a self published book and re-careering. Patrick Golden, the protaganist, has a very different story. “Glancing by chance at the obituary section which until then had been concealed from view, he gasped when a photograph of his friend, Charles Comstock, leaped at him from the page.” Patrick lives near San Francisco and Charles died in Boston. And so begins a tale that is filled with intrigue as it weaves it’s way through the period of the Viet Nam War, one shocking event following the next and the young people trying to find their lives in the midst of it all. The stories of that time come vividly to life.

Set in the "Golden Heart" of Fairbanks, Alaska, the book is one of faith, hope, adventure and perseverance against the daunting challenges of mental illness.

Jack Tallarico may be Connecticut's 1970 champion high school baseball player, but he feels like the world's biggest imposter. Each time he steps up to bat, he prays he can hit his shame out of his life. He finds a reprieve from his family's disgrace by excelling in sports while his twin brother, Kerry, hides his anguish working beneath the hoods of broken-down cars. When Jack meets Paula, the girl who offers the future he believes will save him, they fall in love while Kerry secretly covets her. After Jack and Paula marry and Jack's career in professional baseball takes off, Kerry goes to fight in Vietnam, and trouble for all of them isn't far behind for all of them. Fortunate Son runs the bases of compassion and growth and solidarity in family, and Jack's maturity, in the face of the toughest odds, proves the answers to our prayers lie within us and the power to change is divine.

Years ago, the Jakes brothers were found alone, hungry, and freezing, in a trailer where they’d been left by their mother. One found a happy home. The older son never did, but he always dreamed of the day when they would be together again. Thirteen years later, big brother appears, and he’s determined to reunite the family, even if he has to do it by kidnapping his younger brother. The mother they haven’t seen in years is in New Orleans, and she’s in trouble. Her sons are coming to the rescue, even if one of them is doing it at gunpoint. But things are rapidly spinning out of control in New Orleans. The Jakes boys, the disgraced former sheriff trying to chase them down, and an ambitious Louisiana deputy investigating the mother are in for far more danger than any of them bargained for. As they’re caught between two sides in a vicious drug war, everyone’s fighting to survive, no one knows who to trust, and it’s anyone’s guess who’ll be left standing at the end. A story of loss and redemption, of love and betrayal, and above all of how far some will go to be part of a family, FORTUNATE SON will keep you up all night and leave you unable to forget it.
