Kennedy's O Albany is in part the non-fictional stories he covered in his novels, Legs and Billy Phelan's Greatest Game . Kennedy retells the exploits of the bootlegger Jack 'Legs' Diamond, the bungled 1933 kidnapping of John O'Connell, Jr., heir to the Albany Democratic machine and explores the Albany of his past, including its demographics and vanished neighborhoods.
