The Bago Boy

By John J. Bradley

This novel novel chronicles how a 10-year-old boy, me, escaped the clutches of religious indoctrination by becoming an urban pirate and making a movie of my adventures. My questions about dogma went unanswered, and I was punished for asking them by nuns in class and priestly “punishment in the rectory was much worse.  The novel is irreverent about religion but filled with humor and adventure; a young love story that delivers a surprising message about life, with an exciting conclusion to our urban pirate exploits on the Schuylkill and Delaware Rivers in Philadelphia in the early 1950s.
