Editorial Reviews

WordWeaving
Hubschman has brought together all the ingredients for a riveting read: a sexy anti-hero, a persistent cop with a boyhood grudge, the gritty urban war zone of Brooklyn, NY, where the cultural melting pot is stuck on slow-boil, and a momentary lapse of his main character's judgment that sets the headlong machinery of the story in motion.... Billy Boy is as real as it gets, a tough, disturbing, unsentimental account of life on the mean streets of New York City. Hubschman achieves a minor miracle: he makes us actually care what happens to a small-time punk who appears hell-bent on self-destruction.
Richard Cumyn
“Hubschman has brought together all the ingredients for a riveting read: a sexy anti-hero, a persistent cop with a boyhood grudge, the gritty urban war zone of Brooklyn, NY, where the cultural melting pot is stuck on slow-boil, and a momentary lapse of his main character's judgment that sets the headlong machinery of the story in motion…. Billy Boy is as real as it gets, a tough, disturbing, unsentimental account of life on the mean streets of New York City.”
