TJ English: The Savage City

The Savage City coverEven though Shite’n’Onions is really a Celtic Punk music site we’ve posted a few bookish things over the years – mostly written work by people like Larry Kirwan (Black 47) and Nick Burbridge (McDermotts 2 Hours). Mostly, because I think Celtic punks fans may be interested and because the authors are good guys. Here is a video (the new type of book tour) from a guy called TJ English, I don’t know TJ but assume he’s a good guy and his book the Westies is an absolute classic about the underbelly of Irish-America – the Hell’s Kitchen Irish mob. His new book, The Savage City, explores NYC in the bad, bad old days of the 60’s and 70’s.
