Publisher's Summary

Growing up in Dorchester presented real challenges, but once Tom took over his father's auto repair shop in South Boston, life became intense. Mob-enforcers, drug dealers and killers became his friends and clients. Thomas Cirignano experienced Southie's era of extreme crime and violence, first hand. He managed to not just co-exist, but to thrive in that environment.

At the shop, Whitey Bulger threatened Tom with a gun. A neighbor was gunned-down at the gas pumps. After confronting another would-be killer, that man later returned and shot Tom's friend eleven times. In a house down the street, Whitey was killing people and burying them in the cellar. A friendly drug dealer often tossed samples from his car window while driving past the pumps. Life was never dull, and Tom got himself into near-fatal situations far too often.

How did Tom survive his gunpoint encounter with Whitey Bulger? Find the answer within an inspiring memoir that is tempered by amazing humor.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    "Fantastic story - UPDATE AVAILABLE"
    Where does The Constant Outsider rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the best, particularly considering that it was narrated by the author, and not a professional narrator.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The stories are fantastic and true.


    What about Thomas M. Cirignano’s performance did you like?

    It was great to hear the story directly from the author, as if he were sitting down and telling them to you in person.


    Any additional comments?

    There was an important update to this audiobook on 12/7/2013. Those who downloaded the audio-file prior to 12/8/2013 are entitled to a free re-download of the updated file. Trust me, the additional 16 minutes that were missing from Chapter 22 are well worth the effort of going through the re-download process. You'll be glad you did it.
