Review

Gary Beck, a long-time, theater director, has published a number of books. In this new book of short stories, he takes us back to his 1950s early teen years, where he starts out innocent and then gets dragged into a street gang "to avoid being beaten by them".  With excellent detail and action, we leave the protagonist, Billy, age 18, at the end of the book, out of the gang, and living on his own for the first time in the city of New York, where he gets emotionally blasted by the death of his first love.  -Barbara Bialick, Boston Area Small Press and Poetry Scene
