I Pass Like Night (Contemporary Classics (Washington Square Press))

When Alexander Vine finishes his work day, he leaves his post as a doorman at Manhattan's exclusive Four Seasons restaurant -- and enters a nighttime landscape of chance and danger, excitement and reinvention in the city's erotic underworld. Walking a tightrope between sexua

Scenes from an interesting life
Jonathan Ames began this first novel while in college. Self-deprecatingly, he's written elsewhere that he "prematurely ejaculated [it] at 25." It's a sad and sometimes haunting story told in a forty-odd often gem-like short chapters. A boy: his family, his childhood and adolescence, and his present life, which veers between feeling like too much ("I'm an apple with a razor inside") and too little - each and every day.

Protagonist Alexander Vine is adored by his mother, who has told him "If anything happened to you, my life would be over." He has problems with his father (he cannot bear to hear him eat). He goes to summer camp and gets poison ivy. He plays in the woods with friends as a child. He totals the family car playing "Starsky and Hutch" with a buddy. He loves his great-aunt, and mourns the loss of his grandfather. He's afraid of a lot of things. He's afraid of germs, but likes bums, drunks, and street people very much.
