The Drool Room
Angry, frustrated, and certain that nothing around him makes sense - the narrator of this uniquely conceived book forces you to look at the world through his eyes: as a dyslexic student in the earliest days of Special Education, as a self-destructive teenager fighting his way through life, as a New York City cop trying to survive The Bronx streets during the 1980s - as a child, a lover, a parent. --- Ira David Socol's debut novel brings you to the sharpest edges of our society through a sequence of compelling and remarkable stories - stories as fascinating and entertaining as they are painful and disturbing.
