Summary
Living with her sister and brother-in-law, Mazie spends most days as a ticket-seller at the Venice, a New York City movie theater. Her nights are out on the town. Never marrying, she has a lifelong affair with a sea captain. Mazie develops a close friendship with a devout nun, and together they freely pass out advice, money, and sympathy to those in need.
Critique
The character of Mazie is based on a real-life person described in “Up in the Old Hotel” by “New Yorker” journalist, Joseph Mitchell. The book paints a memorable picture of life on the streets of New York City during the Depression.
