Rate this:
A classy collection of prose and poetry celebrating the attractions and demons of New York. The writers describe their inability to stay and their inability to leave, always with the spirit of the city presiding in overwhelming shadows and in quiet neighborhoods. New York has hosted excellent writers in its career as subject city, and this volume represents them from F. Scott Fitzgerald and Henry James to Joan Didion and Toni Morrison, with doses of poets Lucie Brock-Broido, Rita Dove, James Wright, and Li-Young Lee. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
