About the Book

God's Pocket

Young Leon Hubbard was arrogant and near psychotic. So when he was killed on a South Philadelphia construction site, everyone who knew him wanted to bury the bad news with the body. All, that is, except two --- Leon's mother and the local columnist for the common man. Now back in print, GOD’S POCKET is the powerful first novel from the National Book Award-winning author of PARIS TROUT.
