“Famous Nathan” chronicles the extraordinary life of an immigrant looking for a better life for his family and himself. Starting with just five feet of counter space on Coney Island’s undeveloped boardwalk, Nathan Handwerker opened Nathan’s Famopus, a business that quickly spanned the globe, launching the hot dog as an American food staple and Nathan himself to national fame.
Lloyd Handwerker, author of “Famous Nathan,” is a filmmaker, writer and director of the documentary “Famous Nathan,” which serves as a companion piece to the book.
