Fixer - A Novel by Ed BrodowCan't wait to see the movie!


Review of Fixer by Ivy Naistadt on Amazon.com

Brodow weaves an amazing story around the intricacies of New York City politics and what it meant to be an immigrant at the beginning of the Twentieth Century. This is reason enough to read this fine work. I never really knew what Tammany Hall was until I read Fixer. But the real attraction is the story of Harry Leonnoff, a character who succeeds in capturing the reader's affection and empathy. He overcomes the poverty of the Lower East Side, the lack of a formal education and a frightening bout with polio to become a kind of Robin Hood during the Depression. At a time when immigrants and the poor were victimized by a crooked political system, Harry becomes their champion.

The tragedies of Harry's personal life offer a counterpoint against his success in helping other people. I can't wait to see who plays Harry, Fiorello, Marie, and Willie in the movie!
