Coney: A Novel
Amram Ducovny (au)
Coney Island, 1939: On the eve of World War II, 15-year-old Harry Catzker spends his after-school hours on his bike, picking up betting slips from Coney Island carnival freaks for the local bookie. His father writes a serial novel for the local Yiddish newspaper by day and hangs out with other intellectuals at the Cafe Royal by night; his beautiful mother grows increasingly bitter, yearning for a glamorous life that is certain to be denied the wife of a writer. Harry is unable to shake the dark foreboding of a disaster that finally materializes, changing his life utterly. This novel, soaked through with atmosphere and guided by an uncommon comic touch, captures the essence of a young manís coming-of-age in an extraordinary place and time.
