Call Me Brooklyn from the Author: Eduardo Lago. Through an ingenious structure that jumps from narrator to narrator and spans decades, Call Me Brooklyn follows the life of Gal Ackerman, a Spanish orphan adopted during the Spanish Civil War and raised in Brooklyn, NY. A hymn to mystery and to the power of fiction, Call Me Brooklyn meanders through a series of settings: from Manhattan to haunts of writers and artists to the bar in Madrid where we learn the truth about Ackerman's past. Through an ingenious structure that jumps from narrator to narrator and spans decades, Call Me Brooklyn follows the life of Gal Ackerman, a Spanish orphan adopted during the Spanish Civil War and raised in Brooklyn, NY. Moving from the secret tunnels that shelter the forgotten residents of Manhattan to the studio where Mark Rothko put an end to his life, from the jazz clubs frequented by Thomas Pynchon to the bar in Madrid where we learn the truth about Ackerman’s past, Call Me Brooklyn draws upon a rich tradition that includes Nabokov’s Pale Fire, Bellow’s Humbolt’s Gift, and the novels of Felipe Alfau—a hymn to mystery and to the power of fiction.

Brooklyn 593 Revised from the Author: James I. Plummer. "Brooklyn 593" reflects on the tumultuous life and times of an African-American youth who was born on a small farm in Georgia into a loving family that suffered immensely from the ravages of social and economic injustice and exploitation that permeated American Society during that era. After the untimely death of my mother and my father's subsequent remarriage, my sisters and I were uprooted from rural Georgia and transplanted into the hustle-bustle of big-city life in Brooklyn, New York where we grew up in a dysfunctional, abusive household at 593 Halsey Street. Additional reflections include my experiences during 26 years of military service which included tours of duty in Germany, Libya and Vietnam, with samplings of the many good times experienced and hardships encountered along the way.

Call Me Daddy from the Author: Benjamin P. Feldman. After taking his first wife, Adele Lowen, on a magic carpet ride from a middle-class existence on the Upper West Side to a life of opulence, Browning was duly repaid by being cuckolded multiple times by the svelte and gorgeous Adele. The devastated property mogul divorced her, but retained custody of Dorothy "Sunshine" Browning, one of their two adopted daughters. His antics in seeking a young teenage "playmate" for nine-year old Dorothy in 1925 through the classified ad columns of The Herald Tribune attracted the attention of the Queens County D.A. and attracted mobs of reporters and cameramen to his West 72nd Street offices where he personally interviewed many of the 12,000 applicants for the position, finally selecting a Czech girl who lied to him about her age and family circumstances.With the adoption annulled after one week, Browning, who preferred the nickname "Daddy" turned to other pursuits, sponsoring high-school sorority dances in New York with one condition: that he be invited to attend. 15-year old Frances "Peaches" Heenan, a sometime Textile High School student, met Browning at a Phi Lambda Tau social at the McAlpin Hotel. The two began a rapid-fire courtship with Peaches' parents knowledge and consent, and reporters dogging their every move.Chauffeured to school in Browning's peacock-blue Rolls Royce and showered with expensive gifts, the zaftig girl soon acquiesced to Browning's proposal, and the couple was married in Putnam County, NY in April 1926, in part to avoid intense scrutiny from New York City child protection authorities. The marriage lasted only a few months, though, and after Peaches and her mother (who lived with Browning in a series of posh hotels) walked out in October of that year with 20 trunks of finery, Browning sued for an order of separation. Years of litigation followed with Peaches suing unsuccessfully for divorce and alimony, based upon allegations of sexual barbarity. Browning remained one of the premier laughingstocks of New York and across America until his death in 1934.Call Me Daddy is author Benjamin Feldman's second book, and follows the successful publication of Butchery on Bond Street in the summer of 2007. Feldman's first book was brought out by New York Wanderer Press in association with The Green-Wood Historic Fund to a chorus of favorable reviews and extensive coverage in The New York Times, The New Yorker, The Forward, The Brooklyn Daily Eagle, many other newspapers, and on radio in the US and Canada.
