"Enter from around any New York City corner with KB Nemcosky's Early Exits, where the vibrant life at every cross street keeps opening and opening. What seems like a nostalgic moment quickly becomes the beginning of something new in the cosmic mix and measure - of our mayors, billionaires, seagulls, protests, saints, hard hats, poets, artists, plumbers, musicians, even our losses. Early Exits is a compelling record of Nemcosky's compassionate celebration of daily life." Barbara Henning

"The doppelgänger, identity theft and mix up of characters has always played a big part in literature. In KB Nemcosky's Early Exits we engage the awkward feelings of mixed and misplaced identity. It is fraught with biting satire, humor, pathos - "I rush to elevate the stranger's arm gashed & gushing" - fierce statements of who we are and might or might not be. We/he wander(s) about a chaotic landscape all too familiar to us, at times not knowing if the narrator is the "real" KB or the double he is constantly bumping into, causing discomfort as we realize that identity is never a sure thing and that life is a series of walks around the block." Steve Dalachinsky

"In these grids, on these blocks, here are the voices of friends, neighbors, the sorrows in the aftermath of the World Trade Center, of losing parents, a job, a debilitating freak accident, and the madness of overdevelopment as gleaming skyscrapers rob neighborhoods of light. KB Nemcosky gives us a real sense of the places he's lived - from Prince Street in Little Italy to the Lower East Side to Spanish Harlem to Chelsea - as well as the surreal places he's inhabited through his dreams and imagination. Early Exits is an extraordinary memoir of New York." Lydia Cortés
