yet deeply moving nostalgic tale of memory, mystery . . . and miracles.
York, 1941: Joey El Bueno is just a smart-aleck kid, confounding the
nuns and bullies at St. Stephen’s school on East 28th Street when he
first meets Jane Bent, a freckle-faced girl with red pigtails and yellow
smiley-face barrettes who seems to know him better than he knows

is like nobody he has ever met. She comes and goes at will, nobody else
seems to have heard of her, and is it true that she once levitated six
feet off the ground at the refreshment counter of the old Superior movie
house on Third Avenue? Joey, an avid reader of pulp magazines and comic
books, is no stranger to amazing stories, but Jane is a bewitching
enigma that keeps him guessing for the rest of his life—until, finally,

Rich with the warmth of a bygone era, Crazy captures both the giddy craziness of youth—and the sublime possibilities of existence.
