Lots of 1980s and NYC references. enjoyable at times, but overwhelming too. incessant name dropping of artists and clubs. neat when I recognized the groups, but the vast majority were unknown to me, so it got to be hard to follow. I was going to keep plugging along (I rarely don‘t finish a book), but I had loaned this one on Kindle. When my rental ended, I decided that I‘d rather start a new book. Let me know what you think!
