Former Resident’s New Novel Released
Neal Gillen, a Boulevard Gardens resident from 1937 to 1961, has published Lonely No More, which is partially set in “J” Building. Gillen’s mother, Rose, was an original tenant who resided in “G” building at the time of her death in 1997.
Gillen’s latest novel deals with a man trying to come to grips with a life of aimless drinking following a mystifying shootout with a mob enforcer that ended his exceptional police career. A beautiful woman and a resourceful reporter rescue him from alcoholism and expose the police corruption behind the shooting.
As the story unfolds it takes you through the streets of the constantly changing Queens neighborhoods of Woodside, Astoria, Sunnyside, and Forest Hills, the Sunset Park section of Brooklyn, and the posh River House overlooking Sutton Place and the East River.
This is Gillen’s eighth novel. His other works are Sugar Time, Capital Punishment, Dinner In Bordeaux, Kitty’s Rules, Slamming The Close, The Night Clerks, and Altar Boy.
