Product description


"Janowitz is no longer a slave to New York, and this collection confirms her status as, let's say, a city chieftain or high priestess." -- The Times, 29th June 2002

From the Back Cover

"The other day I was walking down the street (again, fully, 100 percent clothed, and when I say 100 percent, that means practically not an inch of exposed skin) and some man on a corner yelled, "You having a bad-hair day! Whoops, I mean you having a bad-hair month! I guess you probably having a bad-hair life!"
- from Area Code 212

Praise for Tama Janowitz

"A writer of considerable talent."
- The New York Observer

"A singular talent"
- The New York Times Book Review

"A true original."
- San Francisco Chronicle

"Funny, reflective . . . wonderfully sharp."
- The Washington Post

"A penetrating eye."
- New York magazine
