Pigeon in a Crosswalk

Tales of Anxiety and Accidental Glamour

Pigeon in a Crosswalk

From television producer Jack Gray comes a generational account of finding one’s way at work, at home, and even across the street.

There are a lot of unforgettable characters in these pages: a loveable if possibly alcoholic dog; a set of grandparents who crush on Alex Trebek and obsess about death; Golden Girls and blue bloods, anchormen and Supreme Court justices; divas and wags—but the best character of all is the author himself. To read Jack Gray’s musings is to enter the company of a young man of titanic wit and talent. As he observes and echoes the fixations and neuroses of his generation and our times, he will make you squirm, guffaw, and ultimately marvel.
