I first read this in 1997 and most recently in February 2001

{?twitch?}

Set in New York in the very near future, Lola's diary traces the decline and fall of herself, her family and the society around her.

This is a powerful but heartbreaking novel. I felt for Lola, her family and friends. Womack does a stunning job smoothly dragging Lola from comfortable middle-class complacency to a very much harder and tougher street-wise morality.

Read this.

Loaded on the 4th March 2001.
