Rillo Rye, New York by Brian McCrea


Amidst confusion created by the Vietnam War and a family history of drunkenness and infidelity, four brothers, the sons of Irish immigrants, discover unexpected futures with the help of a worthy bartender, their former parish priest, and their congressman. As a decisive night turns into morning, recollections of Gene Sarazen, Prescott Bush, and George H. W. Barbara Bush play brief but significant roles.

Brian McCrea graduated, without honors, from Rye (New York) High School in June 1967. From 1967 to 1971, he was a Westchester County Golf Association Reinach-Turnesa Caddy Scholar.  He lives in Keystone Heights, Florida.
