Work and Other Sins : Charlie LeDuff is that rare breed of news reporter - one who can cover hard-to-get-at stories in a unique and deeply personal style. And in Work and Other Sins, he gives his incomparable take on the city and its denizens - the bars, the workingman, the gamblers, the eccentrics, the lonesome, and the wise. Whether writing about a racetrack gambler, a firefighter with a broken heart, or a pair of bickering brothers and their Coney Island bar, LeDuff takes the reader into the lives of his subjects to explore their fears, faults, and fantasies as well as their own small niches of the globe. The result is at turns a riotous, dirt-under-nails, contemplative, salty, joyous, whiskey-tinged, and utterly unique vision of life in the Big Apple and beyond.
