About the Author: Paul Pines grew up in Brooklyn around the corner from Ebbet?s Field. He moved to the Lower East Side of New York in 1961. In the early seventies he opened his own bar and jazz club on the Bowery, The Tin Palace, which served as the basis for his critically acclaimed novel, The Tin Angel (Morrow, 1983). A second novel, Redemption, set against the Guatamalan genocide of the 80?s, was published by Editions Rocher, 1997. His memoir, My Brother?s Madness, (Curbstone, 2007) explores the nature of delusion. He has published six books of poetry. Pines lives in Glens Falls, NY with his wife, Carol, and daughter, Charlotte, where he practices as a psychotherapist and hosts the Lake George Jazz Weekend.
