"With 'The Kept Man,' Jami Attenberg has written a gorgeously atmospheric novel about art, love and obsession that evokes North Brooklyn in all its gritty, workaday, do-it-yourself glamour. Jarvis Miller is a heroine for the aughts -- passionate, independent, sexy, lonely, and brave. Like Mary Gaitskill, Attenberg gets at the dark and complex hungers that underlie even the most basic human interactions." - Kate Christensen.
