New York: Context Books, 2002. dj. SIGNED hardcover first edition - The author's third book - "At the center of this desolate novel filled with vagrants, wayward teens and lonely, fearful men and women, is Scott, a drifter who supports himself by participating in psychiatric experiments. On the grimy banks of the Schuylkill River in Philadelphia, he meets and befriends Ray, an older homeless man living in a dismal corner of the city's waterworks, hiding from people in his makeshift garden.. [This novel has] a journalistic, almost documentary immediacy . . best appreciated for its taut, spare prose, which skillfully evokes the isolation of listless lives."
