Harold Nivenson's character proves wrong all those who purport that a character must be "likeable". There is very little that is likeable about Harold, but he's bitingly intelligent, and complex, and angry. You need to keep reading, if not for Savage's addictive prose, then to find out what made Harold so unhappy. And if not for that, then for the scathing critique of the gentrifying class.— Sarah G.
A disillusioned artist looks for meaning in the wreckage of his life, and finds it in unexpected places.
