Reviews

"His clear-eyed, heartfelt elegy shows why a Williamsburg--free, fecund, gloriously threadbare--is so vital to the culture."--Publishers Weekly

"With a fine ear for dialogue and a nonjudgmental eye, Anasi conjures the pre-9/11 atmosphere of the place, in which the beer flowed like water and there was always a place to crash after a night of pub crawling. An impressive bit of literary journalism and a sympathetic look at a vanished era."--Kirkus Reviews
