Jay Tasti and Albert Nikozak grew up in 1950's and 1960's in a tough little section of Long Island called Duck Alley.

Hardcover, 239 pages
Published September 1st 1999 by Permanent Press (NY)

Jim DeFilippi is a crime novelist (DUCK ALLEY, BLOOD SUGAR, JESUS BURNED) and humor writer. His crime novels are all times humorous; his humor writing at times is criminal. Newsday called his stuff “Suspenseful, often hilarious,” Publishers Weekly added, “Excellently paced and imaginatively told,” but his favorite blurb is “Whoa, that was good.”
