What they say:
I have read this novel with pleasure and admiration. It is beautifully contrived, ingenious, economical, thoroughly convincing. It is also witty and civilized, and ... must earn a kind of astonished applause.
THE GAME by Izzy Abrahami is a parable of high-rise living. By pushing the voyeur to the extreme, the binocular game flips into the audible-tactible world of existence - "where it's at."
(Author of "The Indian Wants the Bronx")
Izzy Abrahami is a natural storyteller. THE GAME is delicious satire: droll, rather sneaky, always intelligent. It is a fine first novel. It is also what it beholds, a game, and as such is great fun.
