The Fuck Up by Arthur Nersesian

I really enjoyed reading about the New York I always imagined, sordid but wonderful. The central character was like an old friend, who was a bit aimless after going through a rough patch.

An immature lazybones in New York loses his girlfriend and his employment all in a twelve hour time period. Homeless and with nothing but the clothes he was wearing, he spends the next few nights couch surfing, trying to figure out what he needs to do to carry on. This novel narrates his descent through the darker side of New York and his ultimate flight back into normalcy. The ending was definitely unexpected and I honestly expected more from the characters.

3 Stars
