    Grizzled homicide detective Bernie ?Burnout” Farrell heads the hunt for a serial killer who is murdering call girls around Times Square. Hoping to set up a stakeout, Farrell recruits tall, blonde, ambitious rookie cop Gladyss Chronou for the investigation. But Gladyss believes her mystical yoga practice can give her an intuitive edge in solving the crimes and sees mythological patterns in the suspects and events they’re investigating. Bernie thinks she’s nuts, but then, he's a little too grounded. In fact, he's on a steady downward spiral: his wife is divorcing him, his longtime partner just died of AIDS, and he's developed a nagging cough since working down at Ground Zero.Gladyss of the Hunt oscillates between chilly street realism and new age mysticism. As their investigation takes Bernie and Gladyss from arty society gatherings to shabby hotels and SROs, the narrative offers a suspenseful, often wittily satirical account of a city that is flashy and glamorous one moment, dark and violent the next.

    The human contours of the new city, with its surreally shifting social boundaries and incredibly shrinking public zones, remains largely out of reach, with the fortunate exception of science fiction’ writers like J.G. Ballard and John Shirley, and, in a very different way, urban surrealist/satirist Arthur Nersesian. Manhattan Loverboy is paranoid fantasy and fantastic comedy in the service of socials realism, using the methods of L. Frank Baum’s Wizard of Oz or Kafka’s The Trial to update the picaresque urban chronicles of Augie March, with a far darker edge. 202p.

    The New York City of Robert Moses was a place of physical and cultural upheval for thousands of residents. 'The Sacrificial Circumcision of the Bronx' is the second volume of The Five Books of Moses,' an alternate history of New York as seen through the eyes of Uli Sarkisian, a transplant from New York as we know it. The story revolves around Paul Moses and his twisted relationship with his younger, influential brother Robert, who seems determined to keep him from a full public or private life. Tragedy befalls Paul, the neighborhood where he makes his home, and his family as Robert solidifies his power over the city. Arthur Nersesian has written a masterful tale of the scarring of a city.

    A modern cult classic, 'The Fuck-Up' is Nersesian's portrait of 1980's downtown New York City told through the eyes of a underachieving, slacker, wannabe writer. Capturing the bustling, kinetic spirit of the East Village, Nersesian chronicles the outrageous adventures of his anti-hero as he passes between jobs and girlfriends. From posing as a homosexual man to gain employment at a gay-porn theater to starting an affair with a woman old enough to be his mother, 'The Fuck-Up' is a touchstone portrait of a hip, bohemian lifestyle that is both raucously funny and insightful.
