Description

“Deciding that the hopelessness he sees around him on New York’s squalid Lower East Side during the Great Depression isn’t for him, a young man invents an alter ego with the chutzpah he hopes will make a name for himself. In the process he accidentally ignites a war between the Irish mob and a Chinese tong, learns to drink and finds love for the first time. Will he and his alter ego ever reunite? They will have to if he doesn’t want to lose the love of a beautiful Broadway actress.”

    I won this book on a Goodreads Giveaway and tried to do the right thing. My intention was to read and review the gift I was given. It wasn’t until 19%, and what felt like at least 20 content error submissions, before I realized I was taking my good intentions too far. I wasn’t getting paid to proofread!

    How can an author not know that you have to use end quotes…or have a basic grasp of commas…or invest in a qualified proofreader? When my reading became more about seeking out the next typo than being engaged in the story, I knew it was time to put the book down. Not my circus, not my monkeys.

    The thing is that other than the baffling lack of punctuation, the writing wasn’t bad. Proofreaders are a godsend!
