Hardcover in AS NEW condition, dust jacket also in AS NEW condition. Inscribed by author with bold signature on title page. First edition, 1st printing. Full number line present. All pages clean, crisp and bright, binding is square and tight. No marks or remainders, dust jacket not price clipped, protected by a clear mylar cover. A very sharp copy!! Jeff Ruby. Mention the name in Greater Cincinnati & almost every adult will have something to say, even if they've never met the man. Most people will know that he owns the best restaurants in the area. Others will remember his storied eateries of the past. Beyond that, Ruby is a highly visible philanthropist, a champion of fatherless teenage boys, & an advocate for justice for the disadvantaged. Jeff is a tireless promoter of high school football & other local sports at all levels of play. Some might recall that in 1987, he leaped out of a moving car after an argument with his wife, who was driving. He was declared brain dead, not expected to live. That was only the most serious of six decades' worth of setbacks that have required Ruby to constantly reinvent himself & to succeed in spite of whatever fate handed him. Those who were around in 1970 may remember when he came to town, straight out of Cornell's Hotel & Restaurant School, a brash New Jersey-born brawler who quickly reinvented Cincinnati's night life. But even those who have known him the longest won't know everything about him-until now. Jeff has penned this lively & touching autobiography, with assistance from noted biographer Robert Windeler, who interviewed more than 70 of Ruby's friends & admirers from all decades of his life, to flesh out the story. Starting with his fatherless childhood on the Jersey Shore, running away from his problematic, alcoholic mother at age 15, & living on his own, Jeff essentially raised himself & forged his own destiny. By the time this rootless runaway was a senior at Neptune High School, he was New Jersey all-state in football, had straight A's, & went to his dream university, Cornell, against all odds. He came to Cincinnati to be near his beloved Reds, & has stayed to become the man who some call The King of Cincinnati. Here is the whole story.not counting tomorrow. Bookseller Inventory #
