Description
Like a series of snapshots, this 1970 novel by the author of The Sky Changes presents a panoramic view of a Brooklyn neighborhood between the years 1935 and 1951. In short, colorful episodes both profound and profane,Steelwork details the collapse of a basically decent, homogeneous group of people into a greedy, ignorant rabble corrupted by the easy money of the war economy. And although there are many characters who become familiar along the way, it is the neighborhood itself that is the true protagonist.

"Gilbert Sorrentino has all the wit and charm of a great raconteur. His affection for the music of language is as fresh and appealing as that of a kid in love."—Robert Coover
