This book takes you on one hell of a ride! Di Donato's evocative prose is fast-paced, raw and, at times, profoundly emotional. The exploration and evolution of the 80s downtown art scene is meticulously detailed, providing a perfect backdrop for main character Jodi Plum's many-tiered journey through New York City and her own psyche. Jodi and her glamorous roommate, Monika, have a relationship that reminded me so much of the one Amor Towles' leading ladies share in Rules of Civility (albeit in a very different - tho no less excitingly mercurial - era). Jodi is alternately creative, critical, naive, spiteful, kind, helpless, dirty, destructive... but always clever; I loved tracking her journey to self-discovery.  So impressed by this debut, and can't wait for a follow-up.
