I still cared enough about Orloff Trenchant, the protagonist in Chinese Takeout, to read the book through until the last page, although I found myself skimming some pages quickly.
I still cared enough about Orloff Trenchant, the protagonist in Chinese Takeout, to read the book through until the last page, although I found myself skimming some pages quickly. The relationship between Orloff and a junkie named Rita is less than convincing. In other Nersesian works, especially Dog Run, I felt far more connected to the main characters, and in fact, Dog Run had me laughing in self-revelation as the story unfolded. I felt no such connection to Orloff Trenchant, although he was certainly a likable enough character.

Chinese Takeout book. This is the fourth novel I've read by Nersesian, a writer obsessed with NYC for all the right reasons. Loved this book and Arthur Nersesian! His style of writing is descriptive with witty comparisons that his readers can completely relate t. truly felt I was living the life of the character. The style is very much like his earlier stories-a first-person trip through the weirder, darker ( the vanishing) sides of the city.

We need to stand up and show Harper Collins that we still want to read- and we want another amazing work from one of the most influential writers of our time. Finding the key glimmer of hope in the face of humiliation is the Nersesian trademark, present in all his books from The F ck-up to Chinese Takeout, which are set against a New York backdrop that seems to disappear almost as fast as Nersesian can get it on the page.

From the author of the cult classic The Fuck-Up comes a vicious new tale of art, drugs, love, and death on the Lower East Side.
Orloff Trenchant is a painter who sells books on West 4th Street in Manhattan and is obsessed with mastering his craft. Desperate for cash, Or agrees to take a commission no one else will touch: he has three weeks to carve a headstone for a recently deceased restaurateur -- a Chinese takeout box. As Or attempts to make his deadline, he navigates among a toxic mix of fellow artists, struggling gallery owners, bloodsucking art dealers, his politically active friends, and a haunting addict poet whose life is more out of control than Or's own.
Nersesian's prose is sparkling and hypnotic in this brutal and comic story that will make you wonder if life and art are two different things.
