One Man's Colorful Life, from The Great Depression to The Digital Age. . . Mort Grossman's epic life began in 1930s Philadelphia, where his Jewish immigrant parents scraped and pinched to make ends meet in the Land of Opportunity. There on iconic Second Street, Grossman was immersed in a vivid and magical world, with memorable family and friends, hardships and joys. From his challenging relationship with his mother to falling in love at first sight with the woman he would spend his life with, from a career as a candy-seller in a burlesque theatre to a career in the highest echelons of media, from the love of his siblings to his love for his children, Grossman captures the transition from a bygone era to modern life, embracing everything that the past, present, and future have to offer. Boisterous, detailed, and real, Memoirs of a Kid from Second Street takes you on an unforgettable journey through a memorable life.
