    PDF/EPUB David Adjmi ½ Lot Six PDF ↠ ½ Lot Six eBookI gulped this entire thing down in two sittings In retrospect I probably read the second half of the book too uickly – I loved it so much and wish I'd taken time to read it carefully but once I'd started I just couldn't stop Adjmi himself is the eponymous Lot Six — which is Syrian Jewish slang for ueer but the author really teases out the meaning of ueerness here It’s not just his sexual orientation that’s different it’s his orientation to the world around

    PDF/EPUB David Adjmi ½ Lot Six PDF ↠ ½ Lot Six eBookWow I was transported back in time This book took me back to the streets and to my adolescence in New York David Adjmi has an incredible memory for beautifully reviving NY scents and scenes from the 80's and 90's pop fashion and art culture through words as we travel on his path to self discovery and success It’s a beautifully orchestrated memoir and it sings in a language that makes you weep laugh cringe commiserate with him and most of all root for him as he uestions his place within the Syrian Jewish community in Brooklyn His story evokes subconscious feelings from personal passages and you can certainly find a piece of yourself through his writing I could reread this over and over and find myself beside him I believe there is a Lot Six in all of us
