When we think of the Bronx, New York in the 1960s, we think of an apartment above a grocery store named Emil’s, on the corner of 224th Street and Carpenter Avenue. Not a bad time to be alive; not a bad place to live; a cop on every corner and according to author R. Tony, “no shortage of wackos in my neighborhood.” “Not every children’s story includes murder, crime, and profanity,” writes the author. In Stores to My Grandchildren, the author takes a compelling look back at the people he knew from his youth through often amusing (and sometimes harrowing) vignettes, pulling no punches when describing his clear-eyed view of those days. Written in a fast-paced conversational style, this is a realistic, gritty glimpse into the seedy underside of the Big Apple. With no need for overly sentimental nostalgia, R. Tony treats his readers to a veritable cornucopia of colorful characters.
