I’ve read this book cover to cover three times. One of three in-depth books by professor Tim Lawrence detailing the downtown New York Scene of decades past that I so admire. This one uses the musician and composer Arthur Russell as a kind of avatar to navigate the reader through what seemed like an extremely fruitful and creative time for the city. Arthur’s own frustrations with music and a battle with AIDS make this an inspiring yet tragic read.
