The Christmas Kid: And Other Brooklyn Stories

Never before collected in one volume, here are Pete Hamill's stories about Brooklyn, the borough in which he was born and grew up, and the one closest to his heart. These are stories of a New York almost lost but not forgotten, brimming over with nostalgia --- for the world after the war, the city before heroin and crack, the days of the Dodgers and Giants, even, for some, the world of the Depression.
