county of kingsThis jarring and poignant coming-of-age memoir told in a unique voice that seamlessly flows from hard-edged drama to urban poetry. This poetic and often times gritty narrative creates a vivid portrait of Lemon's difficult, yet at times humorous experiences growing up in New York City.

Winner of Best Book of the Year for the 2010 New York Book Festivall. Distilled from our stage version and lovingly edited by Paola Soto and myself, the book captures on the page poetry from the stage.
