A Pulitzer Prize-winning Author A New York Times Bestseller J. R. Moehringer grew up captivated by a voice. It belonged to his father, A New York City disc jockey who vanished before J.R. spoke his first word. At eight years old, suddenly unable to find The Voice on the radio, J.R. turned in desperation to the bar on the corner, where he found a rousing new chorus of voices. Cops and poets, bookies and soldiers, movie stars and stumblebums, all taught J.R., tended him, and provided a kind of fatherhood-by-committee.
