Hemingway said, -A man should never write what he doesn't know.- In the mid‑fifties, Harlan Ellison--kicked out of college and hungry to write--went to New York to start his career. It was a time of street gangs, rumbles, kids with switchblades, and zip guns made from car radio antennas. Ellison was barely out of his teens himself, but he took a phony name, moved into Brooklyn's dangerous Red Hook section, and managed to con his way into a -bopping club.- What he experienced (and the time he spent in jail as a result) was the basis for the violent story that Alfred Hitchcock filmed as the first of his hour‑long TV dramas. This autobiography is a book whose message you will not be able to ignore or forget.
