Old Neighborhood

(1980)
A novel by

 
A Madison Avenue adman returns to the Bronx of his youth in this New York Times bestseller by the author of Kramer vs. Kramer: "Charming" (The New York Times).

Growing up in the Bronx in the 1940s, Steven Robbins was raised on egg creams, baseball stats, and the camaraderie that kept his melting-pot Bronx neighborhood humming during World War II. Robbins aspired to escape his humble roots, and eventually worked his way to Madison Avenue, where he became a hotshot ad man with an enviable wife. But as he pushes fifty and his marriage falls apart, Robbins begins yearning for a deeper happiness. Returning to his old neighborhood in the Bronx, Robbins seeks the simplicity of the life he once fled in the one place where he may ultimately find contentment.

The Old Neighborhood is a warm-hearted novel that shows it is possible to go home again, or to take home with you wherever you go.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Avery Corman, including rare images from the author's personal collection.
