Home Front: The Collection
In Home Front, we find stories as diverse, irreverent and grittily lyrical as the metropolis they all ultimately celebrate. It is a striking debut, filled with narratives at once familiar and strange, and characters both tough-as-nails and yet tender. Martin Kleinman has written New York City a love song no New Yorker will likely soon forget.

Order your copy of Home Front, a collection of short fiction by Martin Kleinman. Each piece is steeped in the lore of 20th century New York City street life that, while harsh if not downright dangerous, is fondly remembered by older and ex-pat NY’ers–and virtually unknown to legions of newcomers.


Martin Kleinman is a New York City story teller. He has captivated audiences with his tales of real New Yorkers in New York venues from KGB Bar to Union Hall. He lives in the northwest Bronx, from where he can survey the full length and breadth of the world’s greatest metropolis.
