"46 Union Street" is an peculiar content wherein poet Bruce Kesselman chronicles the what went before of the Rho Upsilon fraternity, as okay as separate Greek memorandum fraternities at Rutgers University from 1845 to 2006. Such agenda may not mumble suchlike the emblematic absorbing pulp, but Kesselman offers not singular a elaborate business relationship of energy in and out of the "frat" houses, but a rotation of short-stories that move off as a exceptionally pleasant read, even for those of us near no frat-house feel.
The Rho Upsilon section of Alpha Epsilon Pi is a Jewish lodge supported on June 2, 1956. Kesselman recalls, some in pictorials and anecdotes, the antics and accomplishments of the members and alumni of that union. Literally hundreds of pictures transport personal identity to the names, places and profiles recounted during "46 Union Street" and asymptomatic stake the acerbically handwritten tales and recollections of lodge duration at Rutgers during the historical various decades.Post ads:
