FORGOTTEN HERO: A MEMOIR

In 1906, a young boy is sent by his mother to panhandle on the streets of the city. Her husband is dying of tuberculosis and she is pregnant for the eleventh time. She can barely pay the rent, and her two youngest children have no shoes. There is no money for food and to keep the family warm over the winter she burns every stick of furniture in their one-bedroom, basement apartment.

As this family saga unfolds, it is at the same time told through the eyes of nine-year-old, Eddie Paul, growing up in New York City’s Greenwich Village. (Cont’d NEXT PAGE.)
