This working-class ethnic enclave was in a state of flux- seemingly timeless verities were being challenged as a younger generation prepared for the great dispersion to the middle-class suburbs.

Angrosinos stories are built around vivid neighborhood characters making their way through the joys, sorrows, and confusions of everyday life in a community that was soon to vanish. Meet: Ike, the embittered candystore owner who comes to grief when he tries to arrange a marriage for a long-lost relative- Sadie, the whimsical bag-lady who somewhat improbably pines to settle down- Pally, the tormented boxer who destroys his sisters happiness- Mattie, the optimistic good samaritan desperately trying to extricate himself from the coils of an ancient family vendetta- Sammy T., the undertaker with connections- Old Man Conforti, the dying pigeon racer- the Del Lagos, the worlds most hopeless streetcorner doo-wop group-and many more.

In good Italian fashion, these stories deal with sin and redemption, but with plentiful helpings of good music and delicious food.
