1954 Adventures in New York
In trouble in school, at home, and on the streets, a young man struggles to come to grips with his uncertain future in a critical year in his life. The story shares the details of the authors’ often zany life and that of his close friends as he begins his journey, really an adventure, to turn things around while dealing with the many temptations that New York offers.
This humorous tale is laced with quirky, memorable, and gritty characters who lead you throughout this vibrant city. It’s a trip well worth taking as the author and his friends romp through the Big Apple having the time of their lives as they try to find their way in 1954, a time described by the baseball legend Buck O’Neil as: “That was New York City when it was New York City.”
