      Orlo was 30 when he was first love-struck by the sight of year-old Leini, who was eating pig's feet! Formerly a crime reporter for the newspaper The Baltimore Sun, he was a colleague of David Simon, later the creator of both the TV shows "Homicide: Life on the Street" and "The Wire.".   I have never read a book like this, or even thought that one could exist. Maybe that’s because Buddy Hackett never wrote his autobiography. From concept to execution (was it imagined whole or did the squeamishly discomfiting tale emerge in waves that startled the author?), in A Horse Walks into a Bar, David Grossman has created a hard, fast, and bumpy .

      The eternal struggle takes time.—Professor Fate, The Great Race Minnie searched for someone to flag the race—motorcycle versus horse and wagon; logic against hope as hope careened toward fortuna—and saw a kid standing in the crowd that had gathered before the spectacle in front of Saint Barnabas church. Motioning the boy over to her cherry-red The Race Read . For years, Rafael Alvarez has slowly unfolded the heartbreaking story of Orlo and Leini. Orlo, an eccentric junkman and part-time painter, and Leini, a beautiful Greek immigrant, are star-crossed lovers who inhabit the author’s fictional Holy Land of East Baltimore. Alvarez joins us to share a new story from their saga.
