Alvin Levin, himself from the Bronx, captured life in the turbulent era of the 1930s in New York City.
The stories are all told by and “outsider artist”, a writer who is never able to finish his long novel yet easily writes these small touching portraits about the poor who, in their dance halls and bars, long to live the high-life of the Park Avenue “swells.” in dance halls, and bars.
