The stirring novel of a boy & rsquo;s poignant coming of age during the 1920s on Manhattan & rsquo;s Lower East Side When Benny Kramer & rsquo;s father came to the United States, he was hungry, broke, and ignorant. Handed a banana and told it was & ldquo;American food, & rdquo; he scarfed it down, peel and all. By the time he died, he was no richer, but much wiser, and everything he learned he imparted to his son. Growing up on New York & rsquo;s Lower East Side between the wars, Benny & rsquo;s life was just as chaotic as his neighborhood. How many young boys have seen a man decapitated by a horse? How many know blacksmiths who got tangled up in a multiple homicide? How many win an elocution contest, only to find out it was rigged by the mob? For Benny, these are everyday events, and he remembers them with the biting wit that made Jerome Weidman one of the most beloved novelists of his day

Jerome Weidman's enduring classic novel about life in New York's cutthroat garment districtJust south of Times Square, more than six thousand manufacturers of dresses are crammed into the few blocks that make up Manhattan's garment district. Their factories are cramped, noisy, and incredibly profitable--and Harry Bogen is going to take them for all they're worth. A classic conniver, he knows that it's easier, and a hell of a lot more fun, to turn a buck by lying than by telling the truth. First he convinces the shipping clerks--the pack animals of the garment industry--to go on strike. With the dress manufacturers brought to their knees, Harry will be there to pick them up again. His conscience might be conflicted, if he had one in the first place
