really liked it
bookshelves: fiction, jews, new-york, boxing, grasping-and-scheming
Read in June, 2006

A bit melodramatic. The grinding poverty and the rackets of the Lower East Side again. Danny Fisher can't catch a break. Boxing, gambling, business, family and friends all fail him. He turns pretty much unsympathetically bad towards the end, but he has a change of heart for the better at the last minute, but by that time it's too late. Jews and Catholics, life and death, but mostly money. If there's a moral here I can't make it out. Makes the whole world seem evil and unforgiving. Yet it was comulsively readable in that trashy bestseller way.
