Sinners on Fox Street : a novella and stories

Gallardo, Yolanda (author.).

Summary: "In this poignant and often humorous account of growing up in the Bronx in the 1950s, Yolanda Gallardo's mischievous young character vividly recalls her childhood as the neighborhood changed from Jewish to Latino. She and her siblings swam in the East River, despite the rats and garbage; watched police beat up local kids; and got involved in the Royals and Young Sinners gangs. Their family was financially impoverished, but there were many happy times as they watched their parents dance to "hick Spanish records," helped their mom cook pasteles and learned to dance the mambo and cha-cha."--Back cover.
