Read in December, 1989

After I told the guy in NYPL's HR department that I'd work in the South Bronx, my dad handed me this book. I think it was supposed to scare me off, but it didn't. I enjoyed the book, but I also enjoyed working in the South Bronx! I actually worked near where the courts were in the S. Bronx (on 161st St, near Yankee Stadium), so sometimes when I walked to work, I'd think of the court scenes from the novel and the movie (they filmed the movie while I was working there). The book was WAY better than the movie!
