Coney Island Kid
Maria Rand was born in 1924 in the Bronx, New York but spent most of her childhood in Coney Island, running away from bullies, sweeping up bathhouses, trying to run away and join the circus and finally turning into a con-woman with a heart of gold. This anthology of short stories tells of her wild, hilarious and sometimes heart-breaking life.
