CORNER BOY by Herbert Simmons

Corner Boy is a powerful work of social realism that won the prestigious Houghton Mifflin Literary Fellowship in 1957. Jake Adams, at 18 years of age, strides the mean streets of his world like a conqueror. He has custom-made suits in his closet, drives a Buick Dynaflow, and has all the women he wants – all fruits of his success pushing dope for the Organization. His violent rise and fall offers an unforgettable portrait of life in an urban jungle.
