I thought this book sounded interesting, so I figured I'd give it a shot. Within the first 10 pages I almost quit. I couldn't follow what was going on and it just sounded like a mess as I read it. However once I got into it, I was so glad I didn't give up on it. It is such a poetically written novel. I didn't feel like I was reading a book...I almost felt like I was reading a very long poem. The story does jump around a lot, but after awhile I got all of the characters straight and could follow the story easily. I'm so glad I continued and finished this book. by the end I was cheering for Lee and wanted nothing but the best for her. Great read.
Lee is the consummate party girl, living a decidedly consequence-free existence. She has the right clothes---the Helmut Lang heels and vintage Dior dresses---the right job managing a stylish SoHo restaurant, the right shabby-chic apartment in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, and the right pager number to get the right drugs. She even has the right boyfriend---a wealthy Frenchman who bails her out of trouble whenever she teeters too close to the edge.
"Here Kitty Kitty" is about a city that only the young and reckless experience---a place where glamour and danger are just flip sides of the same thrilling coin.
