Product description

Product Description

Johny has hit some tough times in life. His girlfriend leaves him as he is awaiting eviction from his Brooklyn apartment. He becomes homeless, sleeping in Central Park in the cold, and walking to his job at a dog parlor. In the park he faces a different side of reality, but ends up meeting some unlikely characters that he makes friends with. Despite all the hardships, he meets Sandra and Betty, two women who change him dramatically. He comes to get himself out of his mess and understand his struggle, while finding happiness and freedom in his simple life.

“Avoiding the obvious ‘bad boy makes good’ approach, the book treads a subtle line between Johny’s darker moments and those when he begins to regain a sense of self-esteem. Particularly powerful is the portrayal of the destitute in a desperately divided society where the haves and have nots, or ‘broken-downers’, live in close proximity. The Tonys of this world, living in near squalor and struggling with various addictions are contrasted with the Bettys and Harveys, carrying out protected lives in resplendent mansions, a stone’s throw away. As its title suggests, New York is a strong presence in the book which abounds in examples of ‘the paradox of what is at once grand and grotesque about this city’.” -D O'Hagan
