about

This is a coming-of-age memoir depicting the struggles of the son of an Irish immigrant growing up in an all-Jewish neighborhood in the Bronx during the 1950s-1960s. At home he must wrestle with family dysfunction, while in the streets he must navigate a world where Jewish holidays set the tempo of life, where Yiddish is spoken, and where being goyim confers an outsider status. The young man’s life eventually hangs in the balance. He must decide whether to succumb to the pulls of addiction or use the formerly rejected lessons he learned growing up in this Jewish neighborhood to break free and leave the Bronx for good. The Rail: What was Really Doin’ in the 60’s Bronx takes you into one boy’s life and into the Sixties as never before.
