The King of Italy's Personal Tailor

The Uncles they gave me a lotta trouble growing up. Same today.

He enjoyed life

Long Live the King

     Was Carlos really the King's tailor? Maybe--who's to say?

    He was always impeccably dressed, I know that. I don't ever remember talking to him until he moved to California to live with my Aunt Francis who was jealous of my mother. More about that later.

     He and Sophia came to America sometime around 1918 and settled in the Italian section of New York bounded by the Irish on one side and a group of Hungarians on the other. 

     There weren't any other Hungarians in Brooklyn in 1918, and no one knew why they lived next to the Italians, but it was a pretty good fit--ghoulash and spaghetti with meat sauce seemed to have a lot in common.

     Uncle Eddy was the first child born in America.

     Carlos and Eddy never got along.
