This book read like an excerpt from my life navigating lower Manhattan in the early 90's. I genuinely enjoyed it.
This book is written as a series of conversations. Ben Tanzer is an expert writer of dialogue. I was taken at page one and didn't put the book down until I was finished.
Too many writers produce feculent pop cultural references. There is a tendency to reduce the 90's to a collection bad stereotypes. Tanzer does not. He is as believable as he is relevant.
This book did not "change my life," but it certainly made it better for a while.
