Growing up on the East Side of Manhattan, Jamie was a daycare runaway and bullied first-grade brawler, Saturday morning movie cowboy and World War II warrior, Central Park rowboat pirate and traffic-stopping horseback rider . . . When Jamie was a teenager, he was a fire-escape gymnast and condemned-building explorer, "Holy Ghost" slow dancer and Chubby Checker twister, redeemed classroom daydreamer and infamous catechism sinner . . .
