"I love this funny, sad, amazing book. St. Marks Place is the most interesting street in the world, because it doesn't try to be; it's abnormal and impossible and ugly and sexy and annoying and inspiring. And the story was written by a St. Marks child, which is probably the only way it could've been told." - Colin Quinn
