In Neil Simon's darkly funny memoir of his family in 1930s Brooklyn, 14-year-old Eugene is preoccupied by his passion for the Yankees and his lust for his beautiful cousin, Nora. Eugene's comic growing pains contrast with the darker issues troubling his family: poverty, illness, long-held sibling resentment, and the growing Nazi threat to relatives in Europe. With a deft and compassionate hand, Simon creates a Brooklyn universe full of memorable characters, humor, and truth.

Neil Simon's spectacular play is presented here by a full cast featuring Valerie Harper, Jonathan Silverman, and Max Casella. Download and start listening now!

    " Amazingly funny. I loved how Eugene talked and how he made the reader laugh talking about his quirky family. It was funny it made me think about how even though family can get on your nerves in the end they are all you have. "

    " I went through a big Brighton Beach Memoirs phase back when I originally read the play. I went out and rented the movie, my friends and I would cast ourselves in the parts and do readings of it, and by the end of the sixth grade I had my own very tattered copy of the copy. Looking back I think that while Eugene is sort of an archetypal adolescent, stereotypical Jew of the time, what-have-you, he is also a magnetic and well written protagonist. "

    " Read this for an English class I subbed for--loved it. The characters come alive and regardless of the era of America it depicts--it echoes contemporary life excellently. Enjoy. "

    " This is a very funny book, a bit embarressing when you read it out loud though! "
