        Tara Ison is the author of the short story collection BALL, the novels THE LIST, ROCKAWAY, and A CHILD OUT OF ALCATRAZ, a Finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Awards. Her essay collection REELING THROUGH LIFE was the winner of the PEN Southwest Award for Creative Nonfiction/5. Very much a history, I enjoyed this book about Rockaway, where I spent half of last summer. Particularly fascinating for me was realizing how deep-rooted some of the Rockaway tendencies are (locals vs. outsiders is one that comes to mind - it's still going strong today, for instance, with the Playland Motel up for sale as a direct consequence of it)/5.
