The Bookmaker

Michael Agovino talks about growing up in Coop City in the Bronx with a gambling addict father who lived beyond the family’s modest means. His new memoir is The Bookmaker. The audio from his 10/15 interview on Leonard Lopate's show on WNYC I wasn't able to embed the audio player that WNYC uses so I matched the it with the video from the Casino. Now where was it that Paul once told me that the KV bookie hung out on Monroe Street?
