Author's first book."This Serendipiter's Journey sets an errant course through the city's back alleys and boulevards to visit some determined individuals in the swarm of conformists. There are voyeurs and eccentrics, a silent-screen star and a little rag-picking lady from the Bronx whose estate will amount to a hundred thousand dollars. There is a street musician, and a man who makes a living by impersonating George Washington, a man who buries dead horses, a deep-sea diver who retrieves wet fortunes and waterlogged bodies, and the erect, lynx-eyed gentleman who is paid a fortune to appraise skyscrapers. There are midgets, and eight-foot-two-inch Ed Carmel, the city's tallest man. The mannequins in store windows come alive during this unusual voyage through New York, and so do the charwomen who rule Wall Street by night."
