Richard O'Mara



The Street Where They Lived book, smallRichard O'Mara In this memoir, Richard O'Mara, a former reporter, columnist, foreign correspondent and editor for the Baltimore Sun, writes about growing up in Philadelphia during the Great Depression. "Reading these engrossing essays, the reader is gripped by two emotions: admiration at the author's story-telling skill, and wonder ... that a young man with such a backgound ... could develop into such a skilled and remarkable writer." Betsy Olavarueth, editor, The Puerto Escondido Times
