NIGHTS IN THE GARDENS OF BROOKLYN: The Collected Stories of Harvey Swados

At his death in 1972, Harvey Swados left behind five novels (including the well-known Celebration, published in 1975), numerous works of non-fiction--concerned primarily with his lifelong commitment to radical socialism--and two volumes of stories. These stories are now brought together, a total of 21 pieces from the volumes A Story for Teddy, and Others (1965) and Nights in the Garden of Brooklyn (1961). With an introduction by his son Robin Swados, which speaks touchingly, and with poise, of the life and career of this uncompromising and respected American writer.
