(From the publisher):
Living in Manhattan as if he owned it, a young man tries to outstrip mortality and the recurring approach of dawn with nothing but good will, controlled substances and wit to sustain him in this anti-quest. He can run but he can't hide. His relentless flight through nightclubs, fashion shows, editorial offices and loft parties finally brings him to the reckoning point, where he is forced to acknowledge loss and, possibly, to rediscover his better instincts.
