Description
(First Edition, Autographed) (A New York Times Notable Book of 2015) New Yorkers have known for some time about Garth Risk Hallberg, who has contributed regularly to such publications as the New York Times Book Review and The Millions, but even they were surprised by the response surrounding Hallberg's immersive, exuberant, boundary-vaulting debut novel, which was snapped up by Alfred A. Knopf and Random House. Set in 1970s Manhattan—and stuffed to overflowing with cultural notes from that raucous time—it follows Regan and William Hamilton-Sweeney, estranged heirs to one of the city's great fortunes; Keith and Mercer, the men who, for better or worse, love them; Charlie and Samantha, suburban teenagers seduced by the downtown punk scene; an obsessive magazine reporter and his idealistic neighbor; and the detective trying to figure out what any of them have to do with a shooting in Central Park on New Year's Eve. We are glad to be able to offer Hallberg's remarkable first novel in an autographed first edition.

"Garth Risk Hallberg has written the kind of debut novel that only comes around once every 20 years or so—one that everyone who's read it roots for.... An edge-of-your-seat epic, which is as tightly told as it is ambitious."—Elle
