This book is exciting. The writing is exciting! It's hysterical and strange is it breaks the fourth wall and it's irreverant and lovely. It's a caper. Its language might get under some folks' skin. It's urban NYC graffiti culture and as such is not a gentle read. But it's incredibly written - kind of ridiculously intelligent and witty. Heartfelt, fascinating... I'm definitely going to buy this one.

Part family values, part NYC graffiti culture (yeah I miss the redbirds too,) part revenge story. I missed my stop going into work because I was so wrapped up in the story. Great ending without being sappy.

Early 80s-90s graffii in New York was awesome, imagine that your father (whom you've never met) was one of the taggers, who is seeking revenge on a friends murder.

A young man's dad comes back from a long absence and involves all his old friends in a quest to keep an evil politician from taking more power in NYC. Brilliantly written.
