After 20 years as a foreign correspondent, moving frequently between unstable countries, Judith Matloff and her husband decided to settle down in West Harlem, New York.  After a whirlwind tour of the area, they plunked down money on an old brownstone, only to discover that their street is at the epicenter of the Cocaine trade in the American Northeast.  Home Girl is the hilarious and heartwarming story of coming home and building a community.  Take a tour of Matloff’s brownstone in the video below (and meet her neighbor “Salami”) and then pick up her wonderful memoir.
