Brooklyn is dead long live the Bronx! Jerome Charyn returns to his roots and leads the literary renaissance of an often-overlooked borough in this surprising new collection. One of our most original novelists depicts a world before and after modern urban renewal destroyed the gritty sanctity of a land made famous by Ruth, Gehrig, and Joltin Joe. In classic New York prose, street-smart, sly, and full of lurches (John Leonard, New York Times), Charyn recalls the mean streets of his youth. In Lorelei a lonely-hearts grifter returns home to a former sweetheart; in Milo s Last Chance a guidance counselor has a disastrous affair with a student; and in The Major Leaguer a former New York Yankee gets entangled with a gang of drug dealers near the wreckage that Robert Moses wrought. In these and ten other stories, Charyn crafts a funny, sad, and loving tribute to the Bronx with his own masterly touch."
