Product Details

Praise

"Lively, affectionate, moving pieces by the natives and transplants who have made Brooklyn one of America’s great literary landscapes." — Tallahassee Democrat

"Intelligently conceived and intelligently executed … a portrait of the borough as it might have been edited for William Shawn’s New Yorker." — Boston Sunday Globe

"There’s plenty of gems … one of the best is Capote’s evocation of the Heights and those first sentences: ‘I live in Brooklyn. By choice.’ " — New York

"Testaments to the mythic place Brooklyn was, and in many ways continues to be."–New YorkDaily News.
