Publisher's Summary

From the Streets of Chambers Lane follows the intriguing story of the Mendoza family's unexpected loss of their youngest son and sibling Michael. Dealing with spiritual struggles and disillusionment as well as familial rivalries and quirky social interactions, the novella introduces the listener to each diverse family member's perspective of the tragic event while personalizing their cultural past and fears of the unknown future. These perspectives include the drug-using black sheep Jose Luis; the religious, fanatical matriarch Lucia; and the detached and nascent Daniel, as well as, a host of extended family members and friends.

I like this book because it made me think of my own family as it will you. Families especially large families have in-laws and outlaws and the like troublesome kids great kids grandchildren fun times it’s a very very interesting book.
I would recommend this book it would take you back to your own childhood and your adulthood if you are near your loved ones.

Sad, sentimental and wonderful

This book is about a family dealing with an unexpected death and not from natural causes, But it is about more than that. It’s about the mom in her five children the youngest one is 20 years younger than his next older sibling. But even the ones who are close in age still have the clicks well except for Jose Luis he’s a gang island to himselfAnd a mass. I love this book I love the way the author flush out every character and got the nuances of each one correct. For example Daniel’s friend Randy was raised mainly by his father until he was 12 so both marriages were with older women that is typical of men who were raised with their mother to find all the women attractive. I thought that was very smart of the author and that is not where the authors knack for detail ends. This book was brilliantly written and although it was sad they did have a few comedic moments but mostly it is a drama about a dysfunctional family coming to terms with the unexpected death in the family. I can only hope there is a book to because I would like to know more about this family. I am so glad I read this book. It deserves fives across the board.

Now on to Mr. Jack Nolan the narrator. Usually when the book ends I turn it off this time I didn’t don’t know why I don’t know if I didn’t feel like getting up who knows. In any event Mr. Jack Nolan had his autobiography done by two anonymous friends of course I just want to say it was a Larry us he is a retired super villain and he has ruined many of industries he says movies TV comic books and now he is working on audiobooks. I found this Cellarius and think he has a great voice for audiobooks so bring it on Jack Nolan.

Family dynamics

From the Streets of Chambers Lane is a book that talks about the dynamics of the Mendoza family after the death of the youngest son Michael. Every member of the family has their own memories of Michael some good and some bad. The description of the family is sad to say is something that comes straight out of the headlines about what really goes on behind closed doors. The book is well written and truthful.
