El Bronx

Jerome Charyn: El Bronx (USA 2012)

From the Publisher:
New York's children wage war on the city's rich, with Sidel as the referee
In his years serving the people of New York, Isaac Sidel has often rescued the city from oblivion, but never has he faced anything as dangerous as the current baseball strike. The South Bronx, a wasteland of drugs, murder, and urban blight, is kept from sliding into utter chaos by Yankee Stadium's steady stream of tourists. Every week that the strike continues and the fans stay away, the Bronx slips closer to the edge.

As the crime rate spikes, a lone bright spot remains. Alyosha, a mysterious twelve-year-old graffiti artist, paints dramatic murals to commemorate the dead. When Alyosha befriends the daughter of the lawyer representing the player's union, Sidel sees a possible solution to the Bronx's woes. But there is too much money in baseball for the strike to be settled peacefully. Before the season starts, more blood will stain the sidewalks of El Bronx.

El Bronx

Jerome Charyn: El Bronx (USA 1997)

From the Publisher:
In the emerald island of Yankee Stadium Isaac watches millionaires play baseball, while a few blocks away children smoke crack and wave kitchen knives in the air. This is the borough where wild dogs used to roam the parks. This is the land where an angel paints paeans to fallen gangsters on a wall on Featherbed Lane - paintings so beautiful they could get him killed. This is a place where they call Mayor Isaac Sidel El Caballo - and where El Caballo knows his city is up for grabs. The Yankees' owner wants to take the team from the Bronx. A corrupt lawyer is paving the way in gold and greed. And on the streets of the Bronx gangsters are waging wars of revenge. Obsessed with the Yankees and the young graffiti artist, Isaac discovers a dummy corporation is dumping money into a Bronx real estate scam, and that unlikely bedfellows are forging unholy alliances all around him. Now the mayor of New York is missing again. He's gone with his Glock to the Bronx in search of a boy nicknamed Alyosha who may die for beauty by the side of a jaded little rich girl. His city beyond redemption, his own soul racked by guilt and illusion, El Caballo is going to save the Bronx, or bury his heart there.
