Steve Tesich actually grew up in my hometown, East Chicago,Indiana, and it was hardly a small industrial town. At it's apex, East Chicago had roughly 75,000 residents and, combined with the rest of the Calumet Region, was an integral part of the Chicago area. The Bloomington,Indiana connection came with Tesich attending Indiana University, also my alma mater. That's where he got the inspiration for "Breaking Away."
