Press Release

Aug 2, 2022

Fulton Books author Frederick Perez, a professional engineer with 60 years of experience in the design of mechanical and hydraulic machinery, has completed his most recent book “South Philly”:  an endearing memoir that invites readers to tag along as the author looks back on his experiences in their South Philly house. Here, he reminisces about his childhood and narrates a vivid perception of the people’s way of living during that time. He also incorporated photographs in this compelling narrative.

“Frederick Perez is the author of his first and only book. He worked for most of his adult life as a mechanical engineer on Apollo-related projects including the capsule and lunar seismometer. He is the holder of many foreign and domestic patents. Twice married and twice widowed and now blessed with progeny from both marriages, including nine grandchildren scattered throughout the U.S. and the UK.

This book is his memoir of a time forgotten by most. A time when there were no antibiotics, when you could die from the flu. When the air was palpably polluted by coal-fired power plants. When pandemics were the normal, such as polio. When racists and warmongers existed, much like today. When there were no supermarkets, only great butcher shops, greengrocers, and real bakeries. When teachers were dedicated to their students and their communities. When morality was taught at home by a father who had lived in the worst of times and places.”

Published by Fulton Books, Frederick Perez’s book is a revelatory piece that shows how one’s early memories plays a crucial part in their development.

The whole read is insightful and thought-provoking.

Readers who wish to experience this interesting work can purchase “South Philly” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes & Noble.
