From the Inside Flap:

Back by popular demand! More than ten years after the publication of Steven Schindler's cult classic novel, SEWER BALLS, Whitey, Vinny, and the rest of the kids from the block return in the “sort of sequel” follow-up, THE LAST SEWER BALL.What's a sewer ball? It's what you go after when you can't afford to buy a ball to play stickball with. Your best friend holds you by the ankles and lowers you upside down into the sewer manhole, with a bent coat hanger so you can fish out balls that other kids were too lazy or too chicken to go after. And believe me, he better be your very best friend! It started on the stoops and playgrounds of the Bronx in the 1960s. Kids with more imagination than money grew up fast playing street games, rocking to a new band called The Beatles, sneaking beers into the stands and inventing make-out games like kiss-o-leario. But as the years flew by, life on those streets went from being fun and games to dead serious. Vinny is on a quest to track down Whitey after decades apart, to find out what really happened to the friendship they thought would last forever. Could family tragedies, a war, and even murder, break a bond that was forged long before eighth grade graduation? Vinny may have fallen on hard times, but a grammar school reunion sets in motion a journey to find his long-lost friend. Secrets that have been simmering since childhood bubble to the surface and eventually explode, when past and present collide with not-so-instant karma in THE LAST SEWER BALL
