People often ask writer Michele Carlo if growing up in The Bronx in the 1970s was scary. Sometimes it was, but probably in a way you wouldn’t expect. Author of Fish Out of Agua and frequent storyteller with The Moth, Michele Carlo brings us another funny, true-life story. You’ve heard Michele on Latino USA before. We featured her story, The Return of the Queen, for a Christmas episode. And as we get ready for Halloween and El Día de los Muertos, Michele brings us this story of being stuck in the middle of what she calls the “Latino Hatfields and McCoys.”
