J a c k s o n , M S: U n i v e r s i t y P r e s s o f M i s s i s s i p p i , (1990.) dj. Hardcover first edition - A memoir of growing up during the 1930s in a Jewish ghetto inside the larger African American ghetto of H a r l e m . Born with a severe cleft palate, much of Horowitz's boyhood was spent in the hospital undergoing one re-constructive surgery after another. The streets taught survival - numbers-running and ticket-scalping were a source of cash for Horowitz; turf wars and muggings were commonplace - while regular visits with his sister to the Apollo theater nutured a love of music, and Central Park at night was a magical place.
