"Hampden Road is a place of sardine can row houses with spiked hair antennae looking down to sneakers hanging on telephone wires. It’s where Sputnik slowly crawling across the sky dropped cinders on us. Caddys, Chevs, and Fords spun out on curves to scare us kids and impress the chicks.

This book is about the purpose and value of human life. It was born out of Cummings' desire to honor her parents’ lives so she made a book that expresses anecdotes of their time shared together. These are Cummings’ thoughts regarding life, love, and selflessness in order to honor her parents’ lives. That is the sole reason for publishing these tales of childhood and life with her parents in the 60’s, 70’s and beyond.
