No be taken aback so many people I know go for this description. It's a YA dystopian that manages to be different. The types were all really interesting, I liked the world the columnist's created, and I was dying to read the next book when I finished this precise.
This is Rapp's first "adult novel" (he's written several young adult novels as well as some does). I'm not sure that I would be enchanted by it if I were a real adult, but I'm a fool for tracts where I have existent in common with the protagonist. The narrator is a 22 turn-old writer who grew up in the Midwest, went to a liberal crafts college, and then moved to Freshly York. The history chronicles a turn or so of his life in the burghal in the early 1990s, which includes squatting in a house in the Oriental Village, collecting collapse checks, and dealing with bizarre roommates and acquaintances. The narrative is in the first person, and as far as I remember we never learn the narrator's baptismal name. I'm wouldn't say that the novel is autobiographical, but since Rapp is also a writer of Midwestern origin who moved to Freshly York (although on a amity at Juilliard) the "starving artist" details feel real. Also, it made me laugh out loud on the instruct.
