Once in a while on Vernon Street, that blind alley of tired sin and lost hopes, someone reaches for the moon.

Like Kerrigan, the stevedore, the old-young man with the strength of three and the secret dreams of a life away from the hell of Vernon Street.

He met Loretta Channing, the slummer, the girl who drove an MG down Kerrigan`s street. They fell in love and they would have been all right, except for Vernon Street.

It stood between them, this crooked length of scarred, cracked asphalt — an abyss that held them worlds apart.
