Publisher's description. Three lives collide in 1980s downtown New York: Argentinian painter Raul, infamous art critic James, and daisy-fresh young wanderer Lucy, a muse looking for her artist.

A work of artistry... Inventive, shocking, authentic, frenetic, fresh. I held my breath the whole way. * New York Times *
A love letter to a vanished New York * Vogue *
Vivid and sensitive, [with] exuberance and heart * Vulture *

Prentiss has imagination and humour... Spirited and delightful * Guardian *
Soulful, ambitious and deeply felt.. A first work of fiction to marvel at and then savor. This is a serious young writer in full command of her craft -- Tom Barbash, author of 'Stay Up With Me'
