Sharon Pomerantz

 

continued

Rich Boy is a significant addition to the American literature of class, but it is also an exact portrait of the years of Robert Vishniak's rise and fall--that vivid quarter century from the sixties almost through the eighties. Pomerantz does a lovely job of capturing the music, the drugs, the politics, the tragedies, the superficialities, and the forced profundities of those years. Manhattan comes back in its seedier, graffitied, slightly frightening version of twenty-five years ago. I found myself feeling a bit nostalgic for it.

Sharon Pomerantz participates in a panel on historical fiction at the Kerrytown BookFest on Sunday, September 12, and reads from Rich Boy at Nicola's Books on Tuesday, September 14.    (end of article)
