“Tony Harte and the Boys from Avondale” by D.R. Pollock follows Tony Harte and his companions through the 1920s’ Jazz Age and the 1930s’ Great Depression.
Pollock’s father took some time after he retired to settle down and write his autobiography. He fictionalized it by altering some of the names to protect people whose innocence was in doubt. The majority of the stories on the pages were ones he remembered from his youth.
D.R. Pollock wrote “Tony Harte and the Boys From Avondale” as a challenge to himself to write a book based on his father’s manuscript that included certain things he had heard growing up that his father had chosen to exclude.
