    • TRIVIA (3)

    • QUOTES (3)

      • (opening commentary)
        Tom: There must be other neighborhoods in the city like this, but you forget them, just like I forgot this neighborhood existed. The Pocket: a place the city swallowed for lunch on its way to an industrial dinner. Forgotten, in some ways as isolated by its unique geography as a remote mountain village. But, in other ways, the Pocket is as much a part of the city as the grittiest slum.

      • Kevin: We bring them (the boys in the neighborhood) in one at a time and we question them. One of them's bound to break. This guy Telford can't be that good.
        Elaine: (to Frank) What do you think? Is he that good?
        Frank: (nods yes)
        Elaine: Well, I read his book. it's sexist, stilted and incredibly pretentious.
        Frank: I didn't read it.
        Elaine: Too bad, you'd have loved it!

      • (closing commentary)
        Tom: Don't we all want writers to wrap us up in good stories, take us out of our lives and into their imaginations? Sure we do. The problem is we have to come to the last page and when we close the cover the writer's gone. We're left looking at the same walls, the same streets we tried to shut out by opening the book in the first place. And in the end, it was just a story.
