Reviews

Seymour Krim? Never heard of him? Start by reading this book cover to cover. If you know Seymour Krim, this collection of 'pieces, ' a compendium of his grand kvetches, will remind you of a true indispensable American individual.--American Book Review
Nobody else wrote about status-envy and disgruntlement with the same level of honesty.--Los Angeles Times
There is the series of remarkably penetrating essays, written out of Krim's own experience, on what it meant, in the '50s, to be a white boy prowling Harlem for sex and music. Today, these pieces are as wise and moving as they were on the day they were written.--Bookforum
The mere presence of this book makes me happy, let alone Mark Cohen's sympathetic editing and introductions. Krim has been out of print for too long.--The Forward
