HERE THEY COME

By: YANNICK MURPHY

Price: $11.00

Publisher: MCSWEENEY'S:

Seller ID: IM417922

ISBN: 1932416501

Condition: GOOD CONDITION


Splitting time between a garbage-strewn apartment and an overly affectionate hot dog vendor, the observant 13-year-old who stands steadily at the center of "Here They Come" gives lyrical voice to an unforgettable instant -- 1970s New York, stifling, violent, and full of life. Balanced between her enigmatic siblings, borderline parents, and a quiet sense of the surreal, she recounts a year of vivid, mundane moments with dark humor and deadpan resilience. By Yannick Murphy, author of the "New York Times Notable Book "Sea of Trees." View more info
