OK, perhaps one of the reasons I couldn't put it down was because I grew up in the exact same neighborhood 20 years earlier. This book was set in the Kingsbridge section of the Bronx in the late 80s, and I grew up on those same streets in the late 60s.
The cycle of poverty, violence, drugs, crime and hopelessness that strangled this once-vibrant neighborhood is illustrated poignantly in this book. For New Yorkers who remember the city during this era, reading this book will be a stroll down memory lane. For everyone else, it is a rare peek into the life of the people who lived and died on those streets.
