    A portrait of Gotham as the 'riotous and anarchic breeding ground of modernity.' It explores the city from four different directions: the actual topography of the city from 1840 to 1919; the era's opportunities for vice and entertainment - theatres & saloons, opium & cocaine dens, gambling & prostitution; the forces of law & order, which did & didn't work to contain the illegalities; a counterposing of the city's tides of revolt and idealism against the city as it actually was. Black-and-white illustrations & photographs. 416p.

    Fiction. They say it takes an average person about 10 years to master a given thing. This was my thinking in 1995 when I dropped out of college in Iowa City to draw comics. Because I'd seen a lot of movies, I figured Hong Kong was the place, so I went there, hoping to put a tap on that excitement. After that plan went bust I tried another, then another. I put down the pen too many times to count, only to pick up again because there was nothing else. If there was a theme to come away with it was that nothing is ever as easy or even as worthwhile as "They" make it seem. The years passed and I was just as deluded, but also still excited, about drawing, though my life was just as ordinary. My name is Blue Okoye. Anyway, that's the short version...

    A National Book Critics Circle Award Finalist. Alison and Veronica meet amid the nocturnal glamour of 1980s New York: One is a young model stumbling away from the wreck of her fashion model career, the other an eccentric middle-aged office temp. Over the next twenty years their friendship will encompass narcissism and tenderness, exploitation and self-sacrifice, love and mortality. Moving seamlessly from present to past, casting a fierce yet compassionate eye on two eras and their fixations, the result is a work of timeless depth and indelible writing. 257p.
