Enter the city and lose yourself

City on Fire


Garth Risk Hallberg

This is New York in 1975. Go there and escape the small town dullness and suffocation and head for the bright lights where you can be yourself, find yourself, or be true to yourself.

In this book, this means, admit to everyone that you are homosexual.

This should have been a good story but I found it very slow and by 25% of the way through it seemed to have progressed very little.

I therefore gave up.

I give this 1 star as it just couldn’t hold my attention. I did try twice to read it though…
