Only In America
Author Harry Golden crafted this work in 1958, and it serves as an exemplar of an era, from a man who was an exemplar of a segment of the populace at the time. Specifically, Golden writes from the viewpoint of a born-and-bred New Yorker and a member of the Jewish community, dispensing wit and wisdom on the world at the time as viewed through his particular lens.
