Posted: Updated:
THE BRONX -

A Bronx author has created a coming of age novel that's gaining popularity.

Author Paul Thaler's book 'Bronxland' follows the story of Paul Wolfenthal, a peculiar 13-year-old kid grappling with the absurdities of his young Bronx life, circa 1960.

Thaler says the book is partially based on his childhood experiences, although it's fiction.

The book has references to historical happenings of the time and features famous figures with ties to the borough.

Bronxland is available here.
