Reviews

"Measured but emotional, illuminating but challenging."--The San Francisco Chronicle
"In a provocative and persuasively argued cri de coeur against New York City's gentrification and the redevelopment of Times Square in the name of 'family values and safety, ' acclaimed science fiction writer Delany proves himself a dazzlingly eloquent and original social commentator. . . . This bracing and well-calibrated blend of journalism, personal history and cultural criticism will challenge readers of every persuasion."--Publishers Weekly
"Reading this book reminds me, as few others in a lifetime of reading have done, just why it is that we so love our cities, what we value in them, and why the great ones become so. [Delany is] one of our finest social critics and one of our great writers."--James Sallis, Rain Taxi
"Essential"--The Nation
"[A] classic of queer history."--Jordy Rosenberg "The New York Times "
"Remarkable."--Salon
