Product Details

Praise

Remarkable, Unspeakable New York is as lively and exciting as the city which is its focus. Shaun O’Connell clearly demonstrates that the nation’s metropolis, as setting and character, has inspired the greatest achievements of many American writers. —Kenneth T. Jackson, editor-in-chief, The Encyclopedia of New York City

“O’Connell’s literary history of New York is informative and readable, written with affection and a poetic flair. . . . Highly recommended.” —S. I. Bellman, Choice

“There is scarcely a sentence here without its critical discernments. . . . Shaun O’Connell’s New York is sometimes a place of possibility, . . . sometimes the City of Destruction, but remarkable or unspeakable, always readable.” —Robert Taylor, The Boston Globe

“O’Connell’s entertaining history will greatly interest literature devotees.” —Publishers Weekly
