Format: Mass Market Paperback
I can't remember where I got this paperback book but it was in 1987, just like the other reviewer. I agree with him about the interesting characters in this book. I was amazed with the homeless woman who would register at nice hotels, then toss her clothing out the window. When the manager or private cop would come to evict her for not paying her bill, she'd answer the door in the nude and the cop or manager would be afraid to throw her out without clothing!! Quite a scam. I wish this book was back in publication, I would enjoy reading it again.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
When I moved into an apartment in 1987, a copy of this book had been left behind by the previous tenant. It is the story of a wealthy banker in the 1950's who lost everything and lived on the streets of New York. To make a long story short, the "characters" he ran into and the stories they have to tell are utterly fascinating. And in the end, the main character who tells these stories (the banker) has an extremely unbelieveable ending to his alcohol and whatever other problems. A SLEEPER!!!!!
