it was ok
bookshelves: novels

Picked this up because it evoked the New York City of my childhood. But it’s mostly stream of consciousness—don’t care for my own, less some fictional character’s monkey mind.

Sordid People I’d rather not know. Unhappy protagonist. Meh.

A few funny scenes—especially the courtroom scene.

But really, sorry I bothered. Not my cuppa.
