From the Publisher
< b>A Pulitzer Prize-winning Author< br>A New York
Times Bestseller< /b>< P>J. R. Moehringer grew up
captivated by a voice. It belonged to his father, A New York City
disc jockey who vanished before J.R. spoke his first word. At eight
years old, suddenly unable to find The Voice on the radio, J.R.
turned in desperation to the bar on the corner, where he found a
rousing new chorus of voices. Cops and poets, bookies and soldiers,
movie stars and stumblebums, all taught J.R., tended him, and
provid a kind of fatherhood-by-committee.
