An Amateur Fireman

by James Otis

A little New York City bootblack spent most of his leisure time hanging around the enginehouse of his district and longing to be big to be a fireman. His friends and neighbors discourage him, but little by little he did odd jobs for the firemen, and finally showed great courage and capacity in a few dangerous fires. From being an amateur he becomes an expert of whom the <>4ih Company is proud. Describes accurately the duties of the Fire Department.

Author of the Day

Alexander McNabb
When Alexander McNabb stopped smoking, he had to find something constructive to do with his hands - so he started writing. His debut novel Olives - A Violent Romance, sparked a lot of controversy in the Middle East because of his use of common family names and because it contained themes such as drinking alcohol, sex before marriage etc. So he followed it with Beirut, in which there’s booze aplenty, sex, gambling, murder, violence and general mayhem. As our Author of the Day, McNabb chats about his love for the Middle East, why his books always deal with politics, democratic values and religion and reveals what music he listens to while writing.
