Synopsis

A beautifully written, evocative memoir of the improbable lives of two brothers: Author Raoul Felder, well-known lawyer specializing in high-profile divorce cases and his brother Jerome, famous as a songwriter under the pseudony Doc Pomus. The tale encapsulates the essence of an urban America of a certain time and place in history. It is a story of essential themes in life: love and death, man's inhumanity to man, crime and divorce, a landscape that is as broad as America and Europe and as deep as the human soul. One can feel the heat of teeming city streets, the power of love, the legal wrestling of federal criminal cases, and the hate of divorces. The memoir is, at core center, tender and brilliant, funny and heartbreaking.
