With Richard Gambino's Red Hook (Confessions of a Brooklyn Eaglet: 1939-1955) Guernica Editions is proud to inaugurate its newest series, the City Series. Red Hook is a humorous, poignant, whimsical account of growing up in a long-ago neighbourhood which was as improbable a place as any one might imagine. Jumping back and forth from one age to another, it is presented through the eyes of a boy as he lived and saw life there. Red Hook describes experiences which would not ordinarily be associated with living in New York, or any other large city. Through anecdote and humour the author sets out to explain how he learned to see life, and what formed him as a writer.
