Work and Other Sins free pdf From the "New York Times" bestselling author of "Detroit: An American Autopsy" "Except for a few drinks, nothing is free in Charlie LeDuff's blunt and touching "Work and Other Sins." The laughter and wisdom are hard won, the lessons are often painful... the sad tales and wit from the bar rail are endless and timeless." --"The New York Times Book Review" Charlie LeDuff is that rare breed of news reporter--one who can cover hard-to-get-at stories in a unique and deeply personal style. In "Work and Other Sins, "he gives his incomparable take on New York City and its denizens--the bars, the workingmen, the gamblers, the eccentrics, the lonesome, and the wise. Whether writing about a racetrack gambler, a firefighter with a broken heart, or a pair of bickering brothers and their Coney Island bar, LeDuff takes the reader into the lives of his subjects to explore their fears, faults, and fantasies as well as their own small niches of the globe. The result is an at turns riotous, dirt-under-the-nails, contemplative, salty, joyous, whiskey-tinged, and utterly unique vision of life in the Big Apple.
