About the Author
Nick McDonell was born in 1984 in New York City.
"As fast as speed, as relentless as acid." --Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times "Nick McDonell is the real thing, a powerful young writer with the look of a dangerous freak and very sharp teeth. The ratio of age to talent is horrifying. His trick is he writes the truth. I'm afraid he will do for his generation what I did for mine."--Hunter S. Thompson "An astonishing rush of a first novel, all heat and ice and inexorable narrative drive...A pleasure to read, a horror to contemplate, a real achievement." -Joan Didion "McDonell is an authentic talent...His novel will endure as a snapshot of his generation as surely as Less Than Zero did of the eighties." -Stephanie Merritt, The Observer (London) "[McDonell] renders Manhattan's cosseted Upper East Side with both the casual authority of an insider and the wry distance of an observer....Impressive." -Jennifer Egan, The New York Times Book Review "McDonell, like the young Jim Caroll, displays a frightening acuity in his astonishing debut." -Elissa Schappell, Vanity Fair
