He has also published humorous collections of observations of life in Scottsdale, Arizona and New York City.

This short work is a nuanced portrait of 5 year old Mitchell Lookers coming of age in 1945, with episodes involving the death of his father, his mothers widowhood, the birth of his sister, his uncles return from the war and his early experiences in school. He confronts bullying and cruelty as well as friendship. He is a young boy finding himself in a confusing post war world. He relies on the love and care of his grandparents and must deal with direct involvement in a mans death. He learns about fear and courage and through diverse perspectives of both his young protagonist and later as an adult, Mitchell looks back on those days of his childhood Boloker presents us with a textured and sensitive narrative.

Brooklyn Yesterday is a work presenting universal themes, a throwback to quality fiction that must be read and appreciated.
