5.0 out of 5 stars New York, New York! It's a helluva town!, March 3, 2012
This review is from: Steal Me For Your Stories (Kindle Edition)
I lived in NYC for fifteen years, and am deeply drawn to any book that can evoke New York City for me. Sometime a poet might focus on the romance of the city, other times the crushing pressure, still others wax on about the multi-cultural ebbs and flows that remixes languages at every subway stop. And yet, "Steal Me For Your Stories" evoked from me something extremely rare: the beautiful madness of NYC. In these short stories, we bounce around the NYC landscape, meeting people who are defining by their wants, their urgency, their desires. The choices they make and the adventures they go on seem formed the city around them, which demands that everyone be extraordinary and thus forces people to be the most extraordinary version of who they can't help but be. It is powerful, maddening & exhausting process, and Todd nails it with his confident and unblinking writing. I recommend "Steal Me for Your Stories" to any expat New Yorkers -- or anyone who wishes they were!
