The coming of age tale draws on author's own childhood in the Bronx in the 1960s.

On this week's Cityscape, author Andrew Goldstein talks about his debut novel, The Bookie’s Son.

The coming of age tale draws on Goldstein’s own childhood in the Bronx in the 1960s.  It's told through the eyes of 12-year-old Ricky Davis, who wants to rescue his parents from themselves -- and from the ravages his father's gambling habit threatens to wreak on his family.
