|"Here They Come"is the lyrical, startling and poignant third novel from Yannick Murphy, a National Endowment for the Arts award winner and one of the freshest voices in American fiction today. Splitting time between a ramshackle apartment and a lonely hot dog vendor, the observant thirteen-year-old who stands steadily at the center of"Here They Come"gives lyrical voice to an unforgettable instant --1970s New York, stifling, violent and full of life. Balanced between her enigmatic siblings, detached parents, and a quiet sense of the surreal, she recounts a year of startling moments with dark humor and deadpan resilience.|
From the Publisher:
The lively, sometimes stifling, and violent world of 1970s New York is seen through the eyes of an observant and resilient thirteen-year-old girl dealing with older and younger siblings, an alcoholic maternal grandmother, absent father, poverty-stricken mother, and the Middle Eastern hot-dog vendor who trades food in exchange for being allowed to fondle her.
