Riva’s guardian angel is a wisecracking cynic who would rather be anywhere than imprisoned in Riva’s body. But assignments are not negotiable. The place is New York City. The time: Spring 1963.
The story of Riva Beside Me is told by the guardian angel, the spirit who shows up in response to Riva’s call: “If I don’t find someone or something to love, I will die.”
Scenes take place at the Museum of Natural History, Horn & Hardart, Chock Full O’Nuts, in subways, at Columbia University, on the Staten Island Ferry, in Greenwich Village, Chinatown, Grand Central Station, at the Fuji Bank on Wall Street, and the Alice in Wonderland statue in Central Park. The music of the era pervades the book.
