Both are physically big, although as a result of different endeavors --- Albert enjoys his Mom’s cooking and Jake lifts weights
Both live/lived in Queens with their mothers --- Albert in a brick bungalow in Ozone Park and Jake in a cramped two-bedroom in a high-rise public project
Both are/were interested in film/theatre/plays --- Albert wants to make films and Jake gave up the theatre
After having read three chapters, this is what I have noticed so far about Albert and Bracegirdle:
Both were talented in the computing of their day --- Albert with skills to set up and maintain a Web-based catalog and Bracegirdle with Multiplicatioun by Algorithme
Both were dependable, hard working young men, not party boys
Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are.
