Through an ingenious structure that jumps from narrator to narrator and spans decades, "Call Me Brooklyn" follows the life of Gal Ackerman, a Spanish orphan adopted during the Spanish Civil War and raised in Brooklyn, NY. Moving from the secret tunnels that shelter the forgotten residents of Manhattan to the studio where Mark Rothko put an end to his life, from the jazz clubs frequented by Thomas Pynchon to the bar in Madrid where we learn the truth about Ackerman's past, "Call Me Brooklyn" draws upon a rich tradition that includes Nabokov's "Pale Fire," Bellow's "Humbolt's Gift," and the novels of Felipe Alfau--a hymn to mystery and to the power of fiction.
