I picked up Schickler's book in a used book store because I liked the title. It is a collection of short stories, that you'll soon discover are interwoven into a different sort of novel. You can't help but understand the small town feeling that a city like New York can have. Each character has a distinctly different voice, making it a perfect read for any person.

Not a good one-

I could not get into this book! I love to read and tried three times to give it a try. I really didn't relate to the characters, didn't get the story and thought it was very bland. The reviews said a sexy book?? What?? No, this book was boring and dumb. It was yucky, do...
I could not get into this book! I love to read and tried three times to give it a try. I really didn't relate to the characters, didn't get the story and thought it was very bland. The reviews said a sexy book?? What?? No, this book was boring and dumb. It was yucky, do not waste your time. The best thing about the book is the cover (and that is why I picked it up) I like the old door and key hole but that is where the good ends. Please, don't waste your time on this one.

    An absolutely innovative neo-comtemporary style

    I remember not being completely enthralled with the book, yet, something in the style and the concept of the book forbade me to put it down. Schickler does a number of interesting things. One of which is that although the stories intentionally have no real continuity, they are very cleverly laced together with brief references. The second element to Schickler's unique style is that in the book, there are no pure protagonists and antagonists, but as it is more often seen in reality everyone has qualities of both hero and villian; predator and prey. These, combined with microscopic detail and 'Lady or the Tiger' styled endings, make the book an excellent work.
