Product description

Review

Restoration Heights dramatizes the conflicts, resentments, and hatreds that hipsters provoke when they displace people of color from their communities. Medearis' honest look at issues of race, money, and class is especially relevant at this moment in history when so much of the world threatens to erupt into flames.

-- "Jeffery Renard Allen, author of Song of the Shank"

A compelling read.

-- "Kirkus Reviews"

A portrait of contemporary New York that would have Jay McInerney green with envy. New York has a new noir poet in Wil Medearis.

-- "Ken Bruen, author of The Guards"

A sly, nimble mystery. Real estate is to the Brooklyn of Restoration Heights what water is to the LA of Chinatown: the nexus of public corruption and private perversity.

-- "Jake Lamar, author of Rendezvous Eighteenth"

An atmospheric and poetic noir debut. Wil Medearis paints a vivid portrait of the changing face of New York City while crafting a compelling old-school mystery.

-- "Lisa Unger, New York Times bestselling author"

An instant New York fiction classic, exuding dark poetry from a lyrical narrative populated by well-defined characters in carefully, or, shall we say, artistically, arranged settings.

-- "Booklist (starred review)"

Smart and evocative...Medearis' novel adeptly explores white privilege, racism, the demands of creating art, and how members of all socioeconomic classes close ranks when it comes to protecting their own.

-- "Publishers Weekly"
