"I loved this novel so, so much.  It’s rare that a book conveys with such unerring precision what it’s like to be newly arrived in New York—the story itself, but also tiny throwaway details like the sudden authority of the blue sky at dawn after staying up all night, or your bones bracing themselves for what comes next, or the exact mood of a Manhattan bar at three in the morning.  I’ve never seen these things described so brilliantly before.  Tess is a remarkable narrator: vulnerable and tough and smart, but more than that, she’s inspiring and riveting.  This book belongs with all the great essential young-female-in-New York classics.”—Kate Christensen, author of In the Drink and The Great Man
