This is an important urban history of neighborhood life that has vanished from the culture. From the author of best-selling fiction Kramer vs. Kramer and The Old Neighborhood, this memoir has already received high praise from important writers. Walter Isaacson, author of the # 1 bestseller, Steve Jobs, calls the book "poignant and evocative." Ken Auletta, author and New Yorker magazine writer, calls it "lyrical."

Here is the Bronx of the 1940s and 1950s, the home front during World War II, street games, candy stores, school experiences, movie theaters that are gone, social mores that have disappeared.
My Old Neighborhood Remembered is told with the storytelling skills that have made Avery Corman a highly praised, best-selling author, whose books have been published throughout the world.
