Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Sometimes glistening, sometimes disappointing, this tour of Broadway from the Battery to Times Square by British journalist Cohn tells the story of the Great White Way through the lives of various eccentric denizens. Mar.
Library Journal
This is a compelling and highly original journey up Broadway from the Battery to Times Square. The title comes from an old song about this famous street of broken dreams and promises. Two of Broadway's unique inhabitants--a punk Soviet emigre and a cross-dressing hooker serve as guides. Along the way we encounter many other unforgettable characters from the past and present. Images of the days of P.T. Barnum and the Flora Dora Sextette are juxtaposed with the harsh realities of today's drug pushers and porno merchants. All elements combine to make this a fascinating reading experience. Recommended for larger public and academic collections. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 10/1/91.--Howard E. Miller, Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Missouri Lib., St. Louis
