The tragicomedy of a young man in NYC, struggling with the reality of his mother's death, alienation, and the seductive pull of drugs.More
"A sidelong look at life in the Big Apple, as experienced by youth that once had hope and aspirations. In spite of the depths to which the main characters descend, the exuberance and humour of the narrative maintains its wonderful disregard for conventional behaviour with great buoyancy. An entertaining read, but it is the resignation and frustration that lingers in the mind that makes this novel so compelling." (
Kirkus)"A rambunctious, deadly funny novel that goes right for the mark - the human heart." (Raymond Carver)"The author is one of those reare writers who catches the moods, nuances and manners of a sub-culture with humor, finesse, skill and accuracy. A born stylist and remarkable discovery!" (George Plimpton)
