Writing New York : a literary anthology

edited by Phillip Lopate

New York is simply too big -- too lush, too rich with history, too integral to the texture of human life during the past two centuries -- for any one writer to tell its story. A proper literary portrait of the storied city demands nothing less than a multiplicity of voices.<p>For this ambitious purpose, Phillip Lopate has selected a stunningly expansive and deeply illuminating collection of the best writing about the world's greatest city. As seen through the eyes of more than one hundred writers -- from Washington Irving, the first New York author to establish an international reputation, to Stephen Crane, Henry James, Dawn Powell, and Langston Hughes -- the Big Apple shines in dazzling and unprecedented ways. "Writing New York" is every bit as vital and surprising as the city it celebrates.<p>
