Very funny and very Manhattan,
This review is from: Ellington Boulevard: A Novel in A-Flat (Hardcover)
Really enjoyed this novel - and as someone who has gone through the process of purchasing an apartment in Manhattan I'm not surprised that Langer was able to create a funny and insightful novel out of this source material.
Ellington Boulevard is a wonderful novel about the warfare involved in acquiring property in New York City. What I liked most about this book was the myriad of characters with all of their faults lovingly laid out and intersecting. The themes of music and musical comedy throughout are also very engaging. Overall, a fun and insightful read that gives the reader a beautiful picture of Manhattan.
