I read this book the first time in high school as part of an extra credit project - I liked it them but freely admit I certainly didn't "get" most of it! Definitely a long read that is time-consuming, it is an interesting study of the 80s in New York City. I can't say that most of it is accurate as I have no idea, but it was an entertaining read with some social commentary that is unmistakable and some softer hints throughout.
