It's tough tomboy Judy Miller's fifteenth summer on the boardwalk with all the relatives packed into the bungalow out at Rockaway -- grandparents Izzy and Ina, parents Sadie and Al, cousin Bruce (down from his upstate boarding school). Then there's that bastard Uncle Morty, who, according to Judy's diabetic chicken-legged father, is a ""dipso-paro-schizoid"" and according to fat Attic -- soon to be Judy's first lover -- Morty's the ""Moogetsu gorilla."" Despite the nitroglycerins A1 and Morty are always popping, all those pizzas and knishes finally transform Morty into one of the obituaries that are Sadie's favorite reading matter. Meanwhile, Sadie has breast cancer; A1 acquires a mall jong playing, mink-coated mistress; Judy has a home-style abortion courtesy dear old Mom. It's all here -- Murray the K, Eddie Fisher, duck tails, hamburger whappos and Cokes. Cheerful and sassy with a glow of health as American as a sweet-sixteen sugar-and-ribbon corsage -- just a trip down memory lane in the '55 family Buick.
