Abstract:

When You're from Brooklyn, Everything Else Is Tokyo is a nostalgic and highly personal memoir by Larry King, America's number one nighttime radio host and host of CNN's "Larry King Live," about growing up in Brooklyn in the forties and fifties, when Brooklyn was the world. Larry King takes us back to the place that transformed him and, in a way, all of us, too: Brooklyn. It was a special place, where egg creams were stirred just so, where satin jackets were hip, where.

Manhattan was "the city" and just a nickel subway ride away, where you hung out day after day with the boys on the corner - your corner - and played stickball and stoopball through the long summer days, where Coney Island was a magical escape, Nathan's hot dogs gourmet cuisine, and the beloved Dodgers the emblem of a time and place. In these pages, you'll see why "when you're from Brooklyn, everything else is Tokyo." It is also Larry King's own story about growing up and.

surviving in "King's Country" - and about why that name was so ironically and obviously fitting for his own Brooklyn days. In addition, he includes delightful anecdotes by other celebrities - those stars of stage, screen, and public life whom Larry interviews daily - who call New York's most famous borough home, for "everyone started in Brooklyn": Woody Allen, Barbra Streisand, Lou Gossett, Jr., Dom DeLuise, Eli Wallach, Isaac Asimov, and Joan Rivers, as well as many.

more. In fact, one out of every seven Americans can trace his or her roots to Brooklyn. Brooklyn is a metaphor - for all Americans - for the place where we grew up, the place that formed us, the place we may have left behind in order to become who we are today. When You're from Brooklyn, Everything Else Is Tokyo perfectly captures the spirit, the scents, and the sounds of a special time and place and, also, of a special state of mind.
