A comment on the Boston College Alumni Facebook page about books by BC alumni prompted BC Bookmarks to dig into the writings of the late 1958 alumnus Edward Hannibal, a novelist and advertising executive who died in 2014. The Facebook commentator called Hannibal’s 1970 novel, Chocolate Days, Popsicle Weeks, a “hidden gem.” Indeed, Chocolate Days won a Houghton Mifflin Literary Fellowship Award and was a bestseller. It tells the love story of Fitzie and Janice who leave Boston to make it big in New York City. Hannibal followed that first novel, with two others Dancing Man and Liberty Square Station, completing his Dropping Out trilogy. Hannibal was also the author of the thriller A Trace of Red and co-author of Blood Feud, about Robert Kennedy and Jimmy Hoffa. More from Amazon.com.
