The Street Singer: A Novel About Sex, Money and Power in a Changing Brooklyn by Stephen Witt

The Street Singer follows flat-broke musician, Jason Spirit, as he stumbles into contact with high-powered developer Thadeus Hoover- a thinly veiled take on developer Bruce Ratner. Mr. Spirirt ends up playing project supporters and opponents against each other in order to get a song he's written to rapper BScott- a take on Brooklyn Nets Minority owner Jay-Z.

This is a novel about sex, money and power in a changing Brooklyn, a musical and often humorous take on present day NYC, complete with Russian oligarchs, blogger journalists, gentrification, poverty, celebrity adulation and basketball. An American discovering a new paradigm of global capitalism with a reinvented Brooklyn at its core.
