Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
The Street Singer tells a captivating story about the struggling musician Jason Spirit who tries to pursuit his dream at recording his own song `Brooklyn'. It started out slow, like most books, but eventually captured me. It gave me a better outlook on Brooklyn, and a different perspective and an appreciation of the people that perform in the subway stations and on the streets. Regardless of the fact that it's a fiction book, it still opened my eyes about the poverty that still exist, informed me about the new development of Brooklyn, and to question who exactly benefits from this "economic" development. I highly recommend this book, whether you're young or old, you will to enjoy it. Street Singer gives audiences a better understanding about Brooklyn and gentrification.

Format: Paperback
This novel is a must read for both native New Yorkers and for those souls that were held prisoners by own choice in this chaotic yet fascinating city.
It addresses our day to day fight in the pursuit of our dreams.
It describes our frantic dance to the rhythm of our fellows travelers' drums.
It unveils the deep, transformative power that, during this journey, passers-by exert upon us.
All you have to do is swipe and get on, you won't regret it.
