He's a cantankerous, aging curmudgeon who drinks too much, smokes too much, and regularly embarrasses his long suffering wife in public by ranting about the demise of the City he loves to hate and the Newspaper he's given the best years of his life. He's also the first man to suffer a heart attack while venting his spleen over a point of language. But luckily for readers everywhere, Harvey Grosbeck survives a wild ambulance ride through the potholes of Manhattan, only to find God a very hip lady in intensive care.
