Overview

"Eight hundred and fifty-three horrifying things had happened to me by the time I was a teenager. That was when I met my Pigman, whose real name was Nonno Frankie."

The year Paul Zindel, his sister, Betty, and their mother lived in the town of Travis, Staten Island, New York, was the most important time of his teenage life. It was the year he and Jennifer Wolupopski were best friends. It was the year of the apple tree, the water-head baby, and Cemetery Hill. And it was the year he met Nonno Frankie Vivona, who became his Pigman.

Every word of his story is true. And The Pigman & Me has an added bonus--one crucial piece of information: the secret of life, according to the Pigman.

About the Author

Paul Zindel (1936-2003) was discovered in the mid-1960's by Charlotte Zolotow, who had seen a television production of his Pulitzer Prize-winning play, "The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds" and decided that Zindel must try his hand at young adult fiction. Mr. Zindel went on to become a pioneer in the genre as we know it today. His books for Harper Collins include "The Doom Stone" and "Loch, " both Recommended books for the Reluctant YA Reader (ALA), and the tragicomic memoir "The Pigman & Me, " which "School Library Journal" said in a starred review "allows readers a glimpse of Zindel's youth, gives them insight into some of his fictional characters, and provides many examples of universal experiences that will make them laugh and cry."" The Pigman & Me" was both a 1993 ALA Best Book for Young Adults and a 1993 ALA Notable Children's Book.
