Summary :

Last Exit to Brooklyn is a raw depiction of life amongst post-war New York's junkies, hustlers, drag queens and prostitutes. An unforgettable cast of characters inhabits the housing projects, bars and streets of Brooklyn: Georgette, a hopelessly romantic and tormented transvestite; Vinnie, a disaffected, volatile youth who has never been on the right side of the law; Tralala, who can find no escape from her loveless existence; Harry, a powerhungry strike leader with a fatal secret. Though they live on the edge, and always walk on the wild side, their alienation and aggression mask a desperate, deep human need for affection and kindship.
