Political "fixer" Harry Leonnoff overcomes the poverty of the Lower East Side, polio, and anti-semitism to become the admired Robin Hood of Depression-Era New York. But vindictive Mayor Fiorello La Guardia doesn't like losing out to Harry over his election redistricting campaign and swears he will get even. "A modern classic." -- Susanna Hutcheson, award-winning journalist
