“Full of great memories, names, observations. It brought it all back. Don’t change a word…” —MICHAEL MUSTO, The Village Voice

“A lithely written, honest and perceptive account of a unique time.” –IAIN BANKS 30 May 2012, author: Stonemouth, & The Wasp Factory

“A superb memoir about coming of age in the bright haze of NYC’s demimonde . . . Belk writes with great candor and intelligence about his time and one cannot help but admire the searching young man who emerges in these pages.” –JUNOT DIAZ . 3 May 2011, Pulitzer Prize Winner, author of The Brief .                                               Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao & Drown

“Belk reveals a Beaudelarian sense of the city and a profound and burgeoning poetic power and sensibility.  He may not know this–I’m telling him.  Pretty? Perhaps.  Broken?  No more.  Poet?  Indeed.  We will read much more from this writer.” –LORD GAWAIN DOUGLAS (great-nephew of Lord Alfred Douglas, Oscar Wilde’s ‘Bosie’) 6 June 2012, author of Fortuna
