About this title


This is the true story of Harry Guttenplan - a crippled Jewish beggar - whom auathor Stephen Grosso met on the streets of New York City. Every week for three years Stephan visited Harry at his welfare-paid apartment in the South Bronx and at his hospital bedside - until Harry died. During those years Harry and Stephan shared vivid moments of joy, pain, and spiritual insight.

On three occasions Harry's deceased brother Morris entered the situation in ways that defy explanation. But the real story is the deeply human and graced friendship of Harry and Stephan - a story you will not forget.

This is a fascinating and moving story.

About the Author:

Stephen Grosso was born in Brooklyn, NY, and spent his youth in New York City. He worked at the City University of New York until he moved to the Catskill Mountains with his wife and young son, where he devoted himself to his craft of writing. He has published 11 works of short stories, biographies, essays and poetry as well as many poems and articles in magazines.. His works are a spiritual reflection on the mysteries of life, suffering and hope. He takes a hard look at the brutalizing effect of civilization on people and on nature. And finally, he faces his own death with fear, courage and hope.

Stephen was a writer in love with the beauty of the English language and its ability to move and inspire us. His poetry and prose put into words the questions and longings we all find lurking in ourselves when we stop long enough to be aware of them. The reader will be sometimes uneasy, at times hopeful, and others sad, but never despairing. Stephen died in April 2006, still writing poetry two days before his death.
