Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

New Jersey's 127-mile stretch of coastline, running from Sandy Hook to Cape May Point, provides the inspiration for this solid collection of short stories, photographs, essays and poems. Writer and editor Youmans (Down the Jersey Shore) rallies such well-known Garden State lovers as John McPhee, Robert Kotlowitz, Robert Pinsky, Stephen Dunn and Gay Talese, as well as less celebrated regional writers like John Mahoney and Sandy Gingrass. Satisfying entries include John Bailey Lloyd's turn-of-the-century ghost story, "A Strange Incident At Bond's Hotel"; Christopher Cook Gilmore's "Atlantic City Proof," a romantic tale of Prohibition-era rum running; an excerpt from Kotlowitz's novel The Boardwalk; Barry Targan's WWII stories; and McPhee's ironic tour of the Atlantic City streets that inspired the Monopoly board. Although much of this material has been published elsewhere, vacationers and Jerseyites alike may be pleased to see these 40 written pieces and 47 photographs together in one place.

''It is hard to imagine a reader who will not find something to delight in, and that pleasure will not be restricted to those familiar with the Jersey Shore.'' --The Times, Trenton

''...Everything in this collection is exceptional... highly evocative and beautiful writing.'' --Wings

The sheer scope of this collection shows how impactful the landscape (and seascape) of the Jersey Shore has been. There isn't a bad story in this collection. They are evocative, exciting, emotional and just plain well-done.

This was a book club pick, and we never even really discussed it. It was that bad. The stories were pointless, and it just did not inspire continued reading after the first few. I did not finish it and gave it to a rummage sale. Thank goodness I got it used and didn't spend a fortune on it.
