About this product
- DescriptionTouched by tragedy and harboring a paralyzing secret, Mickey O'Neil is the kind of boy who feels things others don't seem to tice. Especially adults. And this embodies him with a unique gift. Empathy. Still, when a traffic detour forces his family's car through a black Bronx neighborhood, Mickey, like his mother and older brother, is afraid. The year is 1969. Whites and blacks still live in different worlds; and when Mickey and his brother run from home they find themselves lost in the world they've never kwn. Harlem. Alone, frightened, and without a cent, the brothers are at the mercy of the streets. But salvation comes in the form of the first black man they've ever met. A widower and former Negro League ballplayer, Jack Hutchins has demons all his own, born of a lifetime of discrimination. Reluctantly, he agrees to shepherd the troublesome boys across Harlem to his workplace, Yankee Stadium. But along the way their truths and secrets bubble to the surface and bring with them a danger all their own. Touching on themes of incence, guilt, forgiveness and ultimately love, In Harlem's Way tells the inspiring story of the unlikely relationship forged between Mickey and Jack, and the bond that heals and forever changes them both.
- Author BiographyAfter graduating with distinction from Gettysburg College and the American University Washington College of Law, Robert Pucci passed the bar exams for both New York and New Jersey, then promptly moved to Los Angeles to become an actor. (On quiet nights you can still hear his mother screaming.) While playing a recurring role on The Young & The Restless, he realized that at heart, he is a writer. Robert has sold over twenty-five screenplays to such studios as Paramount, Sony, Warner Brothers, Fox, Universal and Miramax, and has worked with, among others, Oliver Stone, Jan Debont, James Foley, Mark Wahlberg, Roland Joffee and Diane Keaton. People Magazine said that his script for the television movie The Spider & The Fly, .. .contains more twists and turns than an old, knotted phone cord. The New York Times wrote regarding his script for the feature film The Corruptor, Robert Pucci has managed to turn a meat-and-potatoes action flick into a cunning meditation on personal loyalty and situational morality. With In Harlem's Way, his first novel, Robert continues telling stories and creating characters that examine the complexities of the human heart.
