Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mary Bellanova came home to her East Village apartement, cooked dinner, and fought with her boyfriend, Primo, but soon Mary realized that Primo's silence in front of the TV set was more than just one of his bad moods: Primo was actually dead.

Other guys had abandoned Mary before, but Primo's exit was by far the most unique, and suddenly Mary's life — defined so far by a string of temp jobs and unfinished short stories — takes off on a tantalizing adventure as she follows a trail of Primo's ex-lovers.

Arthur Nersesian captures the spirit of the city itself—jolting and full of endless surprises — in this powerful new novel edged with black humor and poignancy.

Review:

"Nersesian...knows downtown Manhattan's East Village life better than most, and his characters are instantly recognizable, if somewhat cartoonish." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"A darkly comic novel...it's Nersesian's love affair with lower Manhattan that sets these pages afire." Entertainment Weekly

Review:

"[R]eaders who know the physical and emotional territory will relish Mary's gritty New York and will feel hopeful, in the end, when she finally achieves a blurry sense of self." Booklist

Synopsis:

Arthur Nersesian, who created a howling New York odyssey in his smash hit The Fuck-Up, captures the spirit of the city itself-jolting and full of endless surprises in this powerful new novel edged with black humour and poignancy. Mary Bellanova's life in the East Village has little direction, a string of temp jobs, a long unfinished collection of short stories, and hazy nights at the local bars. Then her boyfriend, Primo, changes everything. Other guys have abandoned Mary, but Primo chooses the most original route, he drops dead. Left to her own devices, Mary morphs into an urban heroine, boldly navigating city life, searching for a place to scatter Primo's ashes, dealing with his crazy mother and ex-girlfriends, and reluctantly opening her home to Primo's deranged dog, Numb. And suddenly, in a New York minute, Mary is a brand new woman, playing bass guitar in an all woman punk band and plunging into a head spinning relationship with a pierced, tattooed man call Howard.
