About A Girl By Tony Nesca*
About a girl is a short novel that begins with two strangers, a man and a woman, who meet at a bus-stop and go on an impromptu bar crawl on a cool, winter day. Taking place in twelve hours it recounts the oddball, hardcore, characters they meet and their increasing emotional connection as they fall for each other almost immediately. Infused with sexual energy, pop-culture references, intellectual debate and literary allusions this is an unapologetic, uncensored look at our society through the eyes of the outsiders. It is written in a free-flow, spontaneous style with long unhindered sentence that enable the reader’s eye to glide down the page as the story flows and moves to an urban beat of strippers, punk rockers and nightlife happenings.
-Written is spontaneous prose with sentences that go on for pages the book flows beautifully, free, rebellious and alive –
Sara Calnek – THE PROJECTOR
… There is a constant poetic tone and musical sense in About A Girl. There are also some shrewd observations of great penetration…
