"City Kid is perhaps one of the seven greatest books ever written. It has the realness of The Autobiography of Malcolm X, the warmth of The Color Purple, and the page count of Tuesdays with Morrie. It's a must read." - Chris Rock
"A vivid and charming memoir [that] provides tempting glimpses of the vibrant New York of the recent past." - Publishers Weekly
"A wry, sharp, unpretentious cultural analysis." - Booklist
