From Publishers Weekly
Beller's debut collection of short stories focuses on mating rituals among hip urban 20-somethings.
Copyright 1996 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
"Beautifully written . . . powerfully atmospheric . . . although there's no shortage of fun in Beller's writing, the ultimate effect of these stories is bushed, elegiac and timeless."

I read this while laid up in La Paz, Bolivia, and am on here to buy myself a copy five years later.
I hadn't been to NY by then, but in rural Great Britain, Oxford and London in the 1980's had certainly lived many of the thoughts and situations Beller describes.
It resonated like 'The Graduate' did as a film for me.
While buying a few books for the Thanksgiving holiday on a trip to NY, I remembered his name and decided I had to read it again.
What else can a book do for you, that you wish to look it up like an old friend once in a while?
The snide tone of the negative reviews betrays their motivations.
Bravo Thomas! (If you bother to still check these reviews out - I often check my own ratings here)
You also say that every line is clean and polished. Every line may have been edited for typos, but the prose sucks. Sorry, man.
I would love to have Beller review his own book for amazon.com (Tom, click the text that says, "I am the author and want to comment on my own book") Let's hear him tell us what he finds redeaming in this otherwise prosaic tract.
