Dave's carefree life of pranks and stickball in his Lower East Side New York neighborhood ends the day his papa dies. No one wants the 11-year-old "rascal," so Dave is shuffled off to the Hebrew Home for Boys, a.k.a. the Hell Hole for Brats. There he must contend with a brutal headmaster, bullies, freezing rooms, and institutional slop to eat-all on top of his personal losses. But at least Dave is not alone. The boys in his class are "buddies" who look out for each other, and soon Dave meets some friends on the outside. Still a rascal at heart, Dave sneaks out of the orphanage at night. There he meets an old "gonif" named Solly who becomes his guide to the magical jazz-filled nightlife of the Harlem Renaissance. Solly's Yiddish and the engaging dialog that color Dave at Night make it a natural for audio. Narrator Johnny Heller's boyish tones perfectly capture the drama and the wonder of this heartfelt orphan's tale.
