What I’ve Been Reading

saintmazie

Set during Prohibition and Depression-era NYC, Saint Mazie by Jami Attenberg is the story of Mazie–by day an East Village movie theater ticket-taker and by night a friend to the city’s homeless population.  Told through Mazie’s diary entries and interviews with people on the periphery of her life, this novel paints a fascinating picture of a remarkable woman.  Attenberg also creates an incredible sense of time and place.  Recommended to anyone who enjoys a great story.
