“Splendid . . . moments of acute, astonished delight . . . Rayfiel has a grittily haunting feel for New York.”
–The New York Times
“Rayfiel’s atmospheric, day-is-night story reads like a primal…fairy tale with a contemporary twist.”
“Rayfiel’s prose is no less beautiful for the way it nearly ruptures with the pressure of adolescent sex and revelation–it has the harsh, urgent beauty of a great pop tunee emerging in a four-track demo.”
–JONATHAN LETHEM, author of The Fortress of Solitude
“[A] likable heroine whom readers will want to follow."
