Publisher Comments:

"Something close to magic." The Los Angeles Times

The astonishing novel of a young boy's life in the New York City of the 1930s, a stunning recreation of the sights, sounds, aromas and emotions of a time when the streets were safe, families stuck together through thick and thin, and all the promises of a generation culminate in a single great World's Fair . . .

From the Paperback edition.

Synopsis:

A nostalgic novel evokes a world where fiction and reality meet within the 1930s Bronx childhood of Edgar, growing up through the intensity of the Depression and the dazzling hope of the 1939 New York World's Fair. Reader's Guide included. Winner of the National Book Award. Reissue.
