"In his latest novel, Windhauser depicts a Philadelphia neighborhood crackling with the tension of gentrification, and offers us a panoramic and deeply profound view of a community's viewpoints. A beautiful, wise novel..."
--Susan Muaddi Darraj, author of A Curious Land: Stories from Home (Grace Paley Prize in Short Fiction)

As a new resident in south Philly, the story was so real it was like I was watching a scene outside my window. What I found fascinating was that for the first time I could see, and understand, the varying sides to the issues. The author writes in such an unbiased manner, and his characters have such personality and depth for a 200+page book, that it helped provide me the opportunity to see and experience the lives, situations, and experiences people in my own community are facing, that I would probably not have otherwise been given.
One of the biggest take-aways for me was a concept that transcends south Philly, or any city, or even suburb for that matter: The decision to live either besides your neighbors or among them.
This is a small gem of a book that shines brilliantly.
