Not On Our Shelves—Ships in 1-5 Days

What is not written--and shared--may never exist after we are gone. We all have stories. There is something behind everything we do Only we see it from our perspective, and what we don't say may never be recaptured.

--Jay White

Many of us go through life without writing down and sharing our stories. Once we are gone, the tales of our lives risk being lost to the ages. In his book Earth to Brockton, Jay White provides us with a memorable and entertaining narrative of a young man's exploits after leaving 1970s Brockton, moving to Maine, and launching sideways into adulthood.

When Jay left for college in 1989, he wanted to pursue a life involved in baseball. He didn't cut it as a player. A few writing gigs and baseball statistical data entry positions and even graduation from professional umpire school bore no fruit. As it would be, life and plans do not always match. Instead, he had to regroup and find a recreated path (and a way to pay for his college degree). Jay ended up holding over forty mostly unrelated jobs in eight states and two countries. With very little money, much loneliness, and lots of adventure, he collected many stories worth sharing.

During the global pandemic, while being restricted from friends and extended family and unable to share those stories in person, Jay produced this compilation to provide a healthy alternative to the daily news and the stressors endured by many.

Jay entertains us with thoughtful, witty, and often humorous observations on his life's journey from the right field ball boy's stool at Fenway Park to the battlefields of the Middle East and beyond. He hopes to inspire you to write your own stories as he believes we can all learn from them. And he reminds you: your clock is ticking.
