        If thatʼs the kind of book youʼre looking for, my advice is to move on because B-Shifter will most likely disappoint you. The first 3 chapters of B-Shifter are about family. Brunacini devotes the first chapter of the book to chronicling his fatherʼs (Alan Brunacini) year career with the Phoenix, AZ Fire Department.   Jump to the clang of the fire bell and take a colorful ride through New York in the 's with Mose the Fireman. With its upbeat ragtime music, this delightful comic history echoes all the sights and sounds of early New York through the outrageous exploits and adventures of America's most famous fireman.

        One of the most popular dramatic characters of the New York stage in the 19th century—and a figure almost completely forgotten today—was Mose the Fireman. Off-Broadway Axis Company will try to.   The original Mose became the model for a character named Mose in a play called "A Glance at New York," a slang-slinging, pugilistic butcher-firefighter who then starred in a series of popular plays. The character of Mose was picked up by dime novels, mostly by Ned Buntline, where he was the leader of the street-fighting Bowery B'hoys.
