  • The Mortician's Child

    by Kathleen L. Hawkins
    I was a little girl for whom death was a very big problem. My father scared me. There was a casket with a stranger in it in our living room, a trip in a hearse to an insane asylum, and obituaries read with commentary to me during dinner (how easy it is to die).

However, the area began to change, as curiosity shops gave way to top fashion designers’ stores. Michael D. Minichiello captures this shift through ninety interviews that paint an enlivening portrait of this Oz-like neighborhood.
