Editorial Reviews

Review

"With the heart of a sociologist, [Fischer] wanted the unique and diverse stories of Brooklyn’s most interesting people . . . Meet the Regulars delivers an entertaining account and intriguing perspective on 46 people who were either born, bred, or have lived in Brooklyn long enough to talk about it." —Our BK Social

"While the book’s original focus was not about gentrification, the topic came up in a majority of his interviews with the regulars. As a result, the book became a voice of those who may be struggling to stay in touch with a place that is losing its identity, but aren’t exactly complaining about changes either . . . At its heart, Fischer hopes readers feel they are in on the conversations in the book. —amNewYork

"Meet the Regulars is the perfect portrayal of everything Brooklyn and New York City represent . . . And while you might think this book is all about the cool places in Brooklyn—and okay, it kind of is—it also uses these places to tell the stories of Brooklyn." —Lara's Book Club

"Fischer is very conscious of the image that springs to mind at the word 'regular' . . . Meet the Regulars does away with any sense of the conventional." —Citylab

"When you live in such a populated, ever-changing place like Brooklyn, it's important to have an anchor. You need a place that will outlast your lease, your day job, or your roommate situation. And it's nice to have a tangible, offline snapshot of all that." —Jim Tews, comedian and author of Felines of New York --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
