In Forever, Pete Hamill boldly imagines how one man and one city can endure great tragedy, flourish in a wealth of cultural influences, and unravel the mysteries of love and sex and loss and discovery over a life span that has no end. For the hero and his home, there is both great burden and great joy in a life that continues forever.
