"Horrigan's novel is convincingly at home in its time period, full of wonderful details and forthright opinions about architecture and art, family dynamics, and the fight over civil rights." - Kirkus Reviews
"Whether it is flirting with a sexy stranger who sits next to you in a Broadway theater, public sex in a dressing room in Rome, or seeking emotional solace in Palladio's La Rotonda, Pennsylvania Station, with its echoes of Henry James and E. M. Forster, amazingly collapses the profound grief of losing the past with the fear of gazing into a new future." - Michael Bronski, author of A Queer History of the United States

1) The story really paralleled the plight of old buildings and the sensation of being a homosexual who came to age before the LGBT rights of the 2015, with being a new building and younger member of a gay community.
2) The characters were so easily to identify that I swear I've dated a guy identical to Curt before.
The beautiful Penn Station is set to be demolished, and Frederick is drawn into his friends' hopes to save it. He also endures a violent attack by a man he brings home. Meeting the young, fickle yet passionate Curt forces him to adjust to a new life and a new generation. The era of discreet cruising and closeted life erodes as a new life forces itself upon him; a fascinating read.
Set in New York, Pennsylvania, Italy, and Munich, it explores the passage of time from multiple directions. With characters in every phase of life, some of them are growing up while others are growing old. Horrigan’s book draws a parallel: between the demolition and reconstruction of beloved monuments, and the build-up of memories and choices that form one man’s life.
