Thanks, Dan. This nicely evokes our fado experience last year in Coimbra. We would have loved to experience more of it in Lisbon, but we couldn’t find any casas de fado that featured music any earlier than 10 pm. With all the walking we were doing, and the need to catch the train back to Sintra (where we were staying), we just couldn’t do it. But reading your piece, it’s almost like we did!
We’d have done the same in your situation—and a nighttime return to Sintra holds its own romantic appeal. Anyway, being able to meander in search of fado was one of the benefits of staying in a shabby little garret apartment (94 steps up) on a Beco in deepest Alfama.
Daniel – in my business dealings over the years I have done business in Turkey with a company called EDPA. The principals of EDPA, a family business are Sephardic Jews who have been living in a Jewish enclave in Istanbul (probably starting as Constantinople) under the Ottoman’s for 500 years. The Ottoman’s conquerores many lands but were not focus on converting cultures and allowed the enclave of Jews to live in their enclave. Interesting fact – the language spoken in the enclave is 500 year old Spanish. My friends do not speak the antiquated Spanish but their parents do. It is another story that originates under similar times and places as the story you just told. I love these kinds of stories and being able to connect a dot or two.
Fascinating stuff, Dan! I too love following the streams of the past. One never knows where they may flow & emerge.

Since the handover in 97 – the walled Kowloon City has been razed and it is no more.
Great comparison! I love these quirky little corners of the world.
I was the Associate Producer for the videotaping of his concert. I worked for Wolf & Rissmiller (concert promoters) and we had a deal with MTV to shoot a number of concerts at the Country Club, including, as the contact sheet for the shoot says, “Garland Jeffries In Concert”. Classically tacky that we had his name spelled wrong. Most of us were from the LA area. About the only NY person there was Les Garland, the VP/Programming Head for MTV. Jeffreys had played the Roxy in May, which some of us went to, to see what his show was about. I remember scooting the biker off camera, and that most of Brinsley Schwarz’s band, The Rumour, played with Jeffreys that night on stage (from what I recall). Thanks for the memories!
Sorry for the slow response—I greatly appreciated your comments. And, yes, most of the Rumour (if not all) played that night with Garland. I remember talking at length backstage with Brinsley himself, plus the drummer (Dave Golding?). Truly a night to remember.

Just to correct when you write that “The last to be revealed, in Belmonte, didn’t emerge until the 1980s!”.

The job contribution from Schwarz to complete the history of the Marranos is really incredible.
Thank you for that insight! I was quoting from local materials, but you are correct. In fact, without Schwarz, one wonders how much might have been lost.

My name is Lydia and I’m a community editor at the Sun Sailor. I’m wondering if you’d be interested in doing a Q and A with me for the paper on your latest book. Thanks!
Certainly; I would be happy to talk with you. If you’re thinking email, I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. For phone, try my cell at 651-747-7959.
I will be in Excelsior on Tuesday, the 14th, though I don’t suppose that’s any advantage these days.
Thanks for your interest in my work!
Having grown up in Excelsior, Paradiso Park was so fun to read! Although this novel is not an autobiography or memoir, the events and people are loosely based on reality and it was great fun picking out characters and locations and puzzling over others I couldn’t recognize.
I was swept up in the story from the jump. It took me several days to read and I realized it was because I was re-reading lines and pages multiple times, savoring the rhythm of the prose, studying the vibrant words chosen and especially reveling in the snappy, contemporaneous dialogue. Not once did I see a slip there, where a discordant word or phrase threw me out of the scene. Each character had their own patter, gestures and tics and it held consistently.
I loved how Gabriel captured so many elements, such as the widening emotional gulf between childhood and adult that teens navigate and the fragile masks we try on as we attempt to figure out who we are.
The book beautifully illustrates the ties that remain between friends who knew you when you were young and still being formed, even when you don’t see them for decades.
Especially captivating was the rich, pungent writing – the language bopped and skittered like music, with the ever-present lyrics and beat of the exploding 60’s underpinning the action. This was like a touchstone for the character of Gabe; a constant soundtrack for both his confusion and realization.
The colliding cross-currents of social change at the confluence of Excelsior’s Amusement Park and Danceland, reflected in the transitional teenage years in the small village, along with the universal struggle for identity and a personal truth make this a fascinating read on many levels.
I was struck by the poignancy and regret in this paragraph, and it felt like a good summation:
“We wanted it all back again: summer…Paradiso Park, bright and sparkling…the party room juke pumping out those big fat horns…Luke the Spook undisappeared. But we knew it could never be. Knew that time’s arrow flies only forward and once loosed, can never be recalled.”
Wow–talk about insightful analysis! I appreciate your close reading of the book & hope that you enjoyed finding connections to your own memories of Excelsior.
