In the Aldridge family, nothing’s off limits—no dream is too big, no achievement is unreachable, and there are no rules to hold anyone back.
It’s 1980 in New Rochelle, New York, and seventeen-year-old Shawn, the baby of the family, is a lost soul trying to find his own way in the grit and grime of nearby New York.
As the rest of the family focuses on making his violin prodigy sister famous and rescuing their cousin from a cult, Shawn dates not one, but two girls—one a Times Square peep show dancer and the other a virginal neighborhood girl.
The series of mishaps and mayhem leading up to his sister’s Carnegie Hall concert will leave you gasping, laughing, and crying through the very last action-packed line.
Comical, whimsical, nostalgic, and raw, Gypsies of New Rochelle highlights the well-meaning, but misguided Aldridge family, a dumpster-diving band of twentieth-century gypsies.
