Lot Six Reviews

  • Cori Thomas
    This book is brilliant. It is one of those I will re-visit for sure. I finished and knew right away that I will read it again. The writing is majestic and the story it tells is immediate and gripping and moving. An American memoir we have not seen as yet. I can not recommend it highly enough. Gorgeo...

    always visceral, often thrilling - sometimes deeply uncomfortable, yet i wanted to steep in this world adjmi so precisely communicates. the book pulled me, tumbling, through an emotionally driven outline of one individual's growth patterns - at once i felt both voyeuristic and uniquely interwoven in...

    I gulped this entire thing down in two sittings. In retrospect, I probably read the second half of the book too quickly – I loved it so much, and wish I'd taken more time to read it more carefully, but once I'd started, I just couldn't stop. Adjmi himself is the eponymous Lot Six — which i...

    David Admji is already known for the flawed, complex, extreme characters he brings to life on the stage, and now he's applied the same lens to his experience of growing up a Syrian Jew in Brooklyn, across the country to a briefly dreadlocked period in L.A. then to Iowa for porn and pancakes and back...
  • Sarah Tolan-Mee
    This is a stunning memoir that follows a brilliant, eccentric, sensitive, keenly observant, daring, hilarious Adjmi on his journey of self revelation. It is the portrait of how someone becomes a person and an artist. What culture are we born into and does that have anything to do with who we are? Wh...
  • Michael
    paints a vibrant portrait of the playwright as a young gay man, growing up on the margins of Brooklyn's affluent Syrian Jewish community, born to a family whose fortune had long been lost, several years younger than his other siblings, who felt connected to each other and their past in a way he did ...
