Joy Street

£6.99

Product description

Hardback with dark blue covers, it has silver titling on the spine. It is in good condition, although the spine is faded.
Set in Boston just prior and during World War II. Nothing could be more dissimilar than the two sides of Boston's famous Beacon Hill. On the slope toward the Common from Mount Vernon, the cross streets are lined with fine old houses, possessed by fine old New England families; on the slope from Mount Vernon toward Cambridge Street, dingy tenements precariously occupied by aliens are interspersed with delicatessen and other small shops, obscure offices and unpretentious eating places. And nowhere is this contrast more marked than on Joy Street.
