James Gallant's novel describes a situation common in older American inner-city neighborhoods of our time: the clash of incoming, home-restoring, middle class people disenchanted with difficult commutes and suburban anomie, and poor--sometimes criminal--populations long entrenched in these neighbohoods. Beneath Gallant's humor is a serious concern with ambiguities in race and class relationships, and law enforcement, demonstated in wonderfully specific tales and anecdotes.
