I love JSF for giving me this book, if for no other reason than "I have heavy boots" is the best way to say "I am so incredibly down right now I can feel it in every part of myself and even walking is a chore." A 9/11 NYC story that's free of guile ...more

Not many books make me cry actual tears, much less in public. What starts as a very gimmicky ESL narrative turns into the most heart-rending generation-spanning story of honor, love and betrayal I've ever read about WWII (that's a lot) and the effect ...more

The rise of hip hop culture, the gentrification of Brooklyn, two kids named after musical giants, alienation and thinly-veiled autobiography, with just enough magical realism to make New York in the dirty '70s and '80s seem, well, magical.
