This book is complex tapestry that defies attempts to sum it up in a sentence or two. Even now that I have finished, I am still unable to pinpoint what the book is "about," but the story itself--with all of its strange and beautiful moments--is certainly a journey, and I am glad to have read it. The writing is poetic in that it examines the world in a new way, and finds truth, beauty, and goodness in unexpected places. I remember seeing a review that described this book as a love song to New York, and that, perhaps, comes closest to capturing the "aboutness" of this story, yet at the same time, it truly is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg that is this book.
