Comment & a review

“I love Martha King’s astutely roving eyes & ears, what & who she notices, how deftly she weaves perceptive commentary in & out of encounters, & especially how accurately she pegs the now faint smells of 1970s NYC’s low-key squalor crisscrossed by the ambitions & conflicts of its “aht” world. The book paces like a great film script, which makes this an absorbing page turner.”    –Patrick Brennan

“Not only a clever mystery but a meditation on the fragility and interdependence of a community as it shakily weathers a blow to its integrity.” –Jim Feast from his glowing review in the current issue of Sensitive Skin
