Highly imaginative and emotionally powerful, this stunning novel about childhood innocence amid the nightmarish disease and deterioration at the heart of modern Los Angeles was nominated for a National Book Award.

Review:

"A dazzling performance: delightful, dismaying, disturbing, doing all that novels are meant to do." Library Journal

Review:

"Mingling wisps of whimsy and a hard-edged, surgical view, this cuts deeply into the human condition—to a dark, profoundly troubled place where hope and despair exist side by side." Kirkus Reviews
