Brooklyn Boy follows the growth and fortunes of Aaron Schlossberg as he moves from boyhood to early adulthood, from domestic turmoil to gutsy independence, from Brooklyn to Manhattan and the open sea. The story records the shaping of a young sensibility under the influence of a powerful place and time. While laying out a boy's moral and romantic journey, Brooklyn Boy also pays homage to and is a personal mapping of a legendary site. Aaron's history is Brooklyn's.
