No Forwarding Address (1997)
Bodegas, punk rock clubs, drag bars, and barren tenements, the usual ports of call for the resident vagabonds of downtown New York in this first novel by Natalie Jacobson.
Val and Doyle, two friends living on the streets of New York City in the early 1980's, test the limits of loyalty, friendship and self. Based upon actual events from Jacobson's life, No Forwarding Address is rich in detail and structure, revealing a realm where "home" is not a place because nothing is permanent, "family" is just a word you inherit, and "friend" is what you call the people you trust - until they prove otherwise.
