  • "The characters' lives are linked to each other by acts of generosity or cruelty. A daughter in early 20th century Chicago; a hobo during the Great Depression; an office girl in 1950s Manhattan; the young man reveling in 1960s San Francisco, then later tends to dying friends as the AIDS pandemic hits; as the new century opens, a man who has lost his way finds a measure of peace in a photograph he discovers in an old box-an image of pure and simple joy that unites the themes of this work."
  • "The late David Rakoff built a deserved reputation as one of the finest and funniest essayists at work today. Written with humour, sympathy and tenderness, this intricately woven novel proves him to be the master of an altogether different art form. This novel leaps cities and decades as Rakoff, a Canadian who became an American citizen, sings the song of his adoptive homeland - a country whose freedoms can be intoxicating, or brutal."
