Captain Kidd

A novel by

Critical Praise for Jerome Charyn's Dark Lady of Belorusse:

"[Charyn is] a contemporary American Balzac." --Long Island Newsday

"The routine betrayals of borough politics and the dirty deals of black marketeers are brilliantly captured in Jerome Charyn's memoir of his early childhood in the Bronx of World War II....Readers...will mourn Jerome Charyn's entire cast of characters for a long time....This is a terrific little book." --John Irving, The New York Times Book Review

"A beautifully written memoir that makes the reader want more; highly recommended." --Library Journal

"Youth was the magical place of Charyn's inspiration and it is captured here honestly and simply." --Kirkus Reviews

"Charyn is a writer of energy, grace, and insouciance who has proved himself in book after book....It most certainly is a book that any other serious writer would be proud to claim as his or her own." --Washington Post

"Through a child's eyes, Charyn captures the texture of another time and place." --Booklist
