What is it about?
The book is about an oasis in New York City that was a real life Sesame Street, with my dad as Oscar the Grouch and my mom as Big Bird.
My parents ran a grocery
store and then restaurant
called Shopsin’s in Greenwich Village. They ran it at a time when President Ford told the city to drop dead and parents begged their children NOT to move to New York.
The book is about a jazz-singing con man whose diapers I changed.
The book is about how a time and place affected my life and maybe can affect your life too.
