It took me two starts to get into this book, but once I made up my mind to get through it the pay off was there. It's a dark, dirty little book, a glimpse into a future not too impossible, it made my brain squirm a little. There are times it might be hard to follow, but there are flashes of such brilliant writing, I relished the tripping around through time into the characters' lives.

Couldn't get through it. Kind of a New Wave, non-linear story (?) set in a dystopian 21st Century New York City, full of characters who seem to have no relationship to each other. Some nice turns of phrase, but the payoff didn't seem to be worth the effort.
