The Show

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize! Bella is thirty-five years old, mentally challenged, and living at home with her mother, stern Grandma Kurnitz. Ne’er-do-well son Eddie deposits his two young sons on the old lady’s doorstep. He is financially strapped and taking to the road as a salesman. The boys are left to contend with Grandma, with Bella and her secret romance, and with Louie, her brother, a small-time hoodlum in a strange new world called Yonkers.
