An outer-borough boy moves to the foreign land of Manhattan and befriends Lou Reed, in a novel by the Emmy-winning actor and screenwriter: "A winner."Library Journal

Matthew is a sixteen-year-old living in Jackson Heights, Queens, in 1976. After he loses his two most important male role models, his father and grandfather, his mother uses her inheritance to uproot Matthew and herself to a posh apartment building in Manhattan. Although only three miles from his boyhood home, "the city" is a completely new and strange world. Soon, he befriends (and becomes a quasi-assistant to) Lou Reed, who lives with his transgender girlfriend in the same building. And the drug-addled, artistic/shamanic musician will eventually become an unorthodox father figure to Matthew, as he moves toward adulthood, adjusts to a new life, and falls head over heels for a girl wise beyond her years.

"Imperioli can definitely write, and he gets high marks for the verisimilitude and empathy that he evokes."Booklist (starred review)

"A coming-of-age tale dashed with relatable angst and humor."Entertainment Weekly

"Some fictional trips into 1970s New York abound with nostalgia; this novel memorably opts for grit and heartbreak."Kirkus Reviews
