The late David Rakoff built a deserved reputation as one of the finest and funniest essayists at work today. Written with humour, sympathy and tenderness, this intricately woven novel proves him to be the master of an altogether different art form. This novel leaps cities and decades as Rakoff, a Canadian who became an American citizen, sings the song of his adoptive homeland - a country whose freedoms can be intoxicating, or brutal.

David Rakoff's final book before dying of cancer at the age of 47 is a original and refreshing series of interconnected stories chronicling live, love and relationships throughout the 20th century. In addition to David's poignant, acerbic, and witty storytelling skills, he has written the entire novel in verse, and included some beautiful illustrations by Seth. It's a gorgeous design for a sweetly powerful novel by a talented writer who left us far too early.
