Editorial Reviews


HOLLYWOOD VIA ORCHARD STREET is the story of an aspiring young writer who finds himself mixed up with mob bosses in Depression-era New York City. The novel feels like a film produced during that time, right down to the OG [original gangster] slang and love-at-first-sight love story. Wayne Clark does an amazing job of conjuring the feel of Golden Age films in HOLLYWOOD VIA ORCHARD STREET. Like an old movie day on the couch, there's a quaint comfort when the real world waits outside and a breezy tale of dangerous guys and delicate dolls sweeps you away. 
~ Rob Errera for IndieReader
Kirkus Reviews
In this story that feels like a tale culled from the golden age of movies, Clark has created a real Horatio Alger-type character in Charles. What Charles lacks in book learning, he makes up for by reading and listening to those in the know. He can also read people. In other words, Charles makes his own luck, albeit sometimes by accident. He is a protagonist readers can root for. The other well-rounded characters are the leaders of the Chinese tong; the players attached to the Irish mob are more one-dimensional. Clark has paced his narrative well, slow enough that Charles' relationships can grow organically yet not too poky. The novel's atmosphere also gives readers a good feel for a difficult time to grow up in New York City. The result is a colorful snapshot of one man's mission to pursue his ambitions, whatever the obstacles... An enjoyable tale that traces the unlikely rise of a goodhearted man surviving humble beginnings.

As I read Wayne Clark's marvelous historical fiction novel, Hollywood via Orchard Street, I couldn't help but wonder how much more Charles Czerny could do with all the modern conveniences of the internet at his fingertips, but then again, he does quite spectacularly with what's available in his day and at his age. Clark's coming of age tale is rich with the nuances and culture of Orchard Street and the people who lived in the Lower East Side during the Great Depression. I loved following as Charles gets involved in the newspaper trade and the trade wars between rival publishers, and marveled at the classic feel of this story about determination and belief in oneself. Clark's plot is a grand one, and his characters are larger than life. Hollywood via Orchard Street is most highly recommended.
