Bernard Mendillo

Author Bernard Mendilloabout this book: I was in the process of writing a memoir—called "Football"—about my life-long passion for the game of touch football and also about my life-long passion for my Beloved New York Football Giants.

While I was writing it—I kept thinking about when I was young and went to Saint Pius Grammar School in Providence, Rhode Island, in the 1950s. I couldn't put that out of my mind. I started taking notes.

And the second I finished "Football"—I started writing "Nuns!"

"Nuns!' is full of humor and nostalgia. It's about a life no longer seen in America. It's about growing up and family and school.

It's about the things I did during those years. Going home for lunch ever day. Clapping erasers. Wearing a uniform. Marching in May Processions. Being an altar boy—not a very good one, but an altar boy nonetheless. Gregorian Chant. School plays. "Catholic arithmetic."

I think it would make a great streaming TV series—and I've been pitching it to Hollywood people.

I hope you enjoy it.
