Bouquets for Bama: “The Golden Ghetto”

Part of a posthumous salute to artist James Bama.

The Golden Ghetto, by Noel B. Gerson (Bantam, 1970). Published in hardcover in 1969, this novel’s title alludes to life on the seamier side. I was surprised not to be able to discover more about it online, as its author—while new to me—was incredibly productive. American Noel Gerson (1913-1988) is reported to have penned more than 150 books, including those published under his own byline and western fiction carrying the “Dana Fuller Ross” and “Donald Clayton Porter” house names.
