John T. Moriarty's One Square Mile of Mayhem is the first work of fiction in a series of four books about the adventures of Tim Mahony, a teenage Irish boy facing the dilemma of growing up in a racially torn Catholic parish in Cleveland, Ohio. The book is 97% based on true events that took place in the 1950s.
Tim Mahony's parents migrated from County Kerry, Ireland to Glenville, one of the neighborhoods on the east side of Cleveland, where they bought a delicatessen and worked hard to make a new life for themselves. Over time, their little shop became a hangout for an undisciplined gang of white teenagers who were then fighting three other gangs: African Americans from the nearby neighborhood of Glenville, other Caucasians from East Cleveland, and Italian Americans from Murray Hill. Chaos and mayhem ruled the daily lives of these young teenagers. The violent sociological and racial metamorphosis that plagued the East Side came to a head when a gang member was murdered at the Annual Parish Bazaar, the one event designed to bring the warring factions together. The death threatened to transform the ongoing strife into open warfare. Could some degree of racial harmony be restored despite the tragic death?
