“Those looking for a nontraditional portrait of this unconventional city will be delighted by Blount’s colorful, almost tender account.”

Publishers Weekly

“Blount writes a superb simple declarative sentence. But he’ll follow that with a sentence that even a Hall of Fame English teacher, equipped with fresh chalk and a full blackboard, would struggle to diagram. And it won’t just hold together, this sentence. It’ll be a standing ovation-worthy performance, full of music, irony and felicitous juxtaposition, yet not short shrifting in ideas and information. It’ll sound like the Deep South and the Upper West Side, but in good, not illegitimate child or pretentious, ways… America’s most diverting writer takes on America’s most diverting city.”
