Meet Eugene Jerome and his family, fighting the hard times and sometimes each other - with laughter, tears, and love. It is 1937 in Brooklyn during the heart of the Depression. Fifteen-year-old Eugene lives in Brighton Beach with his family. He is witty, perceptive, obsessed with sex, and forever fantasizing his baseball-diamond triumphs as star pitcher for the New York Yankees. As our guide through his "memoirs," Eugene takes us through a series of trenchant observations and insights that show his family meeting life's challenges with pride, spirit, and a marvelous sense of humor. But as World War II looms ever closer, Eugene sees his own innocence slipping away as the first important era of his life ends - and a new one begins.

Very Good in Good jacket. First printing. Very Good/Good+. Gift inscription. Page edges lightly soiled. Dampstain measuring about one inch by one and a half inches--barely noticeable on boards or jacket face. However the dust jacket is a bit wavy at this spot. Otherwise unclipped DJ is in good shape with no tears, a little wear at spine ends.
This is a play that has a lot more to offer to audiences of all ages than one might think.
At first it seems a version of "Father Knows Best," but on closer look it's an analysis of selfishness vs selflessness and of how families work best when working together.
