(Entertainment-NewsWire.com, May 17, 2023 ) Denver, CO and Chicago, IL – Outskirts Press—the fastest-growing, full-service self-publishing and book marketing company—is pleased to announce the release of a new memoir by American author Alexander Rassogianis, the child of Greek immigrants. Growing Up Greek in Chicago – The Ups and Down of an Ethnic Identity is a beautifully crafted, nostalgic snapshot of the author’s childhood, filled with humor and insight.
Alexander Rassogianis celebrates his Greek ethnicity, his extended Greek family, and the joy of having two cultures from which to draw enrichment in his new memoir—a collection of poignant vignettes from Alexander’s childhood that will entertain and amuse. From creating a new nickname, Al, in elementary school (what could be more American than that?), ditching Greek school to play Ping-Pong at Columbus Park, and finding his mother’s Greek pastry after she spent hours trying to hide it, Alexander eloquently shares what it was like to grow up Greek in Chicago.
