“Former section editor Rosenblum gathers 50 of the best pieces of the post–September 11 era by masters of the form including Edwidge Danticat and Francine Prose…this rich sampling delivers.”
““New York is the plural city par excellence, the place of many tales. This new collection, taken from the pages of the city paper, gives us a new luxuriance of New York stories, neither neatly splashy nor narrowly sociological, but instead with the spice and eccentricity and plural energy that New Yorkers will recognize as ours and non-New Yorkers may wish was theirs.”
“The City section was an invaluable counterpoint, almost a stowaway, on the cruise liner of the Sunday New York Times. It delivered news that stays news—indelible and intimate stories of city life, by turns disturbing, amusing, and enchanting. The pieces in this collection are as alive now as they were when they first saw newsprint. Reading them again, even across a distance of years, was like bumping into old friends.”
"Three Hudson valley women contributed outstanding personal essays in this lively collection of urban musings."-Chronogram Magazine,Chronogram Magazine
