A thoroughly minor novella which I would have abandoned had it not been such a short and quick read.. It's a New York story, and a writer story, but not very interesting or successful. Still I would recommend this to people who want to learn to write. It's encouragingly simple and must have been pretty easy to write, so it would make a good example of how to. Not how to write a great story, but how to write an OK story.

A disjointed read. The author jumps back and forward in time from one paragraph to the next. The story itself is not interesting enough to persevere. I got confused then bored. Stopped reading half way through.
