I’m very happy to let you know that Wild Child has just published Cruising the Green of Second Avenue. My collection of short stories centers on New York’s Lower East Side in the late 1960s. Klein the Biker, Straight Charlie, Sammy the Madman, Frank and the Chick from Canarsie romp through the pages in the dawning of a new age. Their highs and lows are covered with humor and insight through the eyes of Jake, the narrator. The collection updates a rich heritage of vernacular story-telling in the genre of O. Henry’s Collected Stories and Damon Runyon’s Guys and Dolls.
Cruising the Green of Second Avenue is available as an e-book--Walt Giersbach '61
