The XXX Files -- Remembering Boston's old Combat Zone in 1969

Had the great pleasure of spending the day with Jonathan Tudan last week, author of "Lovers, Muggers & Thieves -- A Boston Memoir," which talks about his summer of '69 as an 18-year-old managing a Tremont Street flophouse in the old Combat Zone.

The Boston Herald article on Tudan and the book ran today. While I'm not entirely pleased with the over-edit hack job, it still gets the point across. The Herald had a ton of awesome images of the zone at its gritty sleaze peak in the 1970s, though I think the photo gallery shown with the article is of our tour with Tudan last week. To order the book, go to Tudan's book website.

  1. Excellent blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?

    I'm planning to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?

    There are so many choices out there that I'm completely overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Many thanks!

  5. Nice post. I learn something totally new and challenging on blogs I stumbleupon everyday.
    It will always be useful to read content from other authors
    and practice a little something from their websites.

  6. These were affiliate sites with plenty of ads in the sidebars.
    Now this is a very popular and effective web site marketing strategy as well.
    Additionally, men and women have trust with your
    company and merchandise when your Far better Enterprise Bureau ranking is optimistic.

  8. This iѕ difficult, because these two fingers lack the strength
    and control that thе otheгs naturally have. lessons like as
    these can really get you going while in. Don't think you'll be pіckin' and ǥrinnin' anytimе soon.
