Description: 5:00 A.M. in the East Village, and Elizabeth Hall cannot sleep. She sits at her apartment window, entertaining murderous fantasies, while on the street below morons smash bottles, flip trash cans, vomit, and dance. A shady man sits at his window, watching her. In a vestibule down the block Jeanine is turning a trick for the price of a rock. As night turns to day, Elizabeth's thoughts turn outward, to a world unpredictable and dangerous.

No Lease on Life depicts twenty-four hours in the life of a woman and a city on the edge. In this brilliant, darkly comic novel, Elizabeth struggles to keep her wits, whether she is dealing with the Crusties, self-styled anarchists, or complaining to the city housing agency about her landlord. But her life is also enriched by the great variety of city characters: Gisela, an aging beauty tormented, she thinks, by the Swiss police; Hector, the pack rat of a building super; and her boyfriend, Roy, whose laconic and ironic voice is a constant foil to her frantic one.

By the end of the second night, the morons are back wreaking havoc, but Elizabeth is ready for them, striking a final, defiant -- and hilarious -- blow.

Passionately and scrupulously written, No Lease on Life stunningly captures the pathos and humor of life at the end of the twentieth century.
