Table Money

(1986)
A non fiction book by

 
 
As a city worker and former war hero tumbles into alcoholism, his wife fights to hold on to her newfound freedom

Owney Morrison has walked the catacombs underneath New York City since he was eleven. His father was a sandhog - a tunnel worker - and the first to introduce him to the miles of passageways snaking beneath the ground.

Now an adult, back from Vietnam with a Medal of Honor and no work prospects, Owney takes up the family legacy, digging and maintaining the tunnels that provide the city with water. It is dangerous work, and at the end of each shift he deserves a few drinks. But when alcohol takes control of him, his wife Dolores is left with a decision. Should she take her baby daughter and cut ties with her husband, or stay and risk being dragged under by a man who feels safest one hundred feet below the street?

At once witty and moving, Table Money is a memorable portrait of family and marriage in modern America.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Jimmy Breslin including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author's personal collection.
