In The Old Neighborhood David Mamet confirms his stature as a master of the American stage, a writer who can turn the most innocuous phrase into a lit fuse and a family reunion into a perfectly orchestrated firestorm of sympathy, yearning, and blistering authentic rage. In these three short plays, a middle-aged Bobby Gould returns to the old-neighborhood in a series of encounters with his past that, however briefly, open windows on his present. In "The Disappearance of the Jews," Bobby and an old buddy fantasize about finding themselves in a nostalgic shtetl paradise while revealing how lost they are in their own families. In the comfort of her kitchen, Bobby's sister "Jolly" unscrolls a list of childhood grievances that is at nice painful and hilarious. And the old girlfriend in "Deeny," faced with a man she once loved, finds herself obsessively free-associating on gardening, sex, and subatomic particles. Swerving from comedy to terror, from tenderness to anguish—with a swiftness that unsettles even as it strikes home—The Old Neighborhood is classic Mamet.

This book is fifteen chapters of fun reading that any kid could relate to and enjoy. Each chapter is full of adventures such as finding treasure and fossils as well as creating things. One chapter even tells of a language the girls made up so the boys wouldn't know what they were talking about. There is a story of us watching a falling star land not far from the house, what it smelled like and what it looked like when we went to find it. One story tells of us saving and trying to raise 86 tadpoles in the bedroom and the crazy scene when we had little frogs hopping all over the bedroom and how Mama saved them. Once a wild boar chased us down a mountain road! One kid accidentally stepped on a nonpoisonous snake and ran wildly through the yard, bringing the neighborhood to the rescue. There are many other stories in this book that will remind you at times of "The Little Rascals" antics. The kids are all good natured, fun-loving and just enjoyed playing outside using their imaginations. It has inspired many children to get outside and explore.

"Blackwood, there's trouble in the old neighborhood! Murder in the sanctuary of the Church!" The church in question is St. Lucy's, a humble edifice at the heart of a venerable Chicago neighborhood now suffering the throes of gentrification. St. Lucy's has long stood as a bulwark against evil and change, which some in the community have often seen as much the same thing. Now three dead bodies have been left in the sanctuary, stripped, mutilated, and shot through the head, execution-style. A warning to those who would remake the neighborhood---or to St. Lucy's charismatic monsignor, who has made a few enemies of his own? Dispatched by his cardinal to investigate, Bishop "Blackie" Ryan fears that the atrocious murders are only the beginning of a campaign of terror directed at this particular church. But to solve the mystery, and to banish the evil gathering over the community, Blackie will need an unexpected assist from his own long-dead father, as well as the help of Declan O'Donnell, a savvy young cop with a touch of the second sight, and of Camilla Datilo, a radiant assistant state's attorney of Sicilian origins. The Bishop in the Old Neighborhood is another charming and compelling page-turner by bestselling author Andrew M. Greeley. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

A time when you could hear the Rocky Marciano fight being announced as you walked down the street, where people sat outside with their radios, all the way down the block.

The delicious recipes in this book are remnants of those beautiful memorable days. You are invited to participate in celebration of those times, by sharing in recreating these dishes.
