About this title


Set in New York City on June 2, 1995, this novel explores the dimensions of a single day through the lives of fifteen characters. Fluidly moving between narrative perspectives and story lines, 6/2/95 proposes a new structure and form for the novel at the beginning of the twenty-first century while at the same time presenting an absorbing and humorous tale. Breckenridge, a playwright, here turns the novel into a dramatic form. Fifteen characters—among them a painter, a Salvadoran immigrant, an alcoholic, a single mother, and an unemployed writer—travel through New York City on a single day in 1995. As they pass each other on the street, speak on the phone, make love, argue, cheat, and stand each other up, their paths intersect or narrowly miss in a finely choreographed Altmanesque dance. Breckenridge's paragraphless, interlocked text is at times brilliant, at times confusing, but always surprising, and his bumbling, struggling New York is one we can all recognize. --The New Yorker
