KIRKUS REVIEW

Notorious and famous main stem characters and activities in these easy to absorb accounts of Broadway's many worlds. There's Broadway Rose and her peculiar form of panhandling; Lou Walters and his design for nightclubs; one night stands via bus with Bobby Byrnes and his band; Howard Cullman and his angel-ing of Broadway hits; Jack White who was loved in spite of his insults; Singin' Sam and his refusal to earn more money; strong man Charles Atlas, gourmet Crosby Gaige, Conover and his photographer's models, talent scout Gale and what he has done in Harlem; ticket speculation, a USO roadshow, the writing of war songs, the hat check racket, fortune tellers, soap operas, and so on. Figures and facts not currently known to the general public, Presented in good journalese, with an eye to the individuality quotient.
