New York Times best-selling author Mark Kurlansky has turned the seemingly ordinary (salt, the year 1968, the humble cod fish) into some of the most enthralling nonfiction ever written. Now this gifted writer delivers an engrossing and long-awaited first novel.

The booming 1980s have arrived, and in Manhattan's Lower East Side, that means the yuppies have arrived, too. Gentrification has begun! Amidst the hubbub, Nathan Seltzer pursues an affair with the sexy daughter of the local German bakers and fights to protect his little photocopy shop from the predatory advances of the Kopy Katz chain. And all the while, a murderous maniac is terrorizing the neighborhood.

Boogaloo on 2nd Avenue presents an exhiliarating menagerie of peoples and customs while vividly capturing a colorful period of American cultural history. Download and start listening now!

    " Remarkably fun and enjoyable book. Not an earth-mover, but a story whose quirky details and gentle themes have stuck with me for years. Entirely worth reading. "

    " This was too scratched up to finish. I got about a third of the way through and I liked what I heard. "

    " I really enjoyed Kurlansky's non-fiction. He should probably stick to that and leave fiction alone. "
