Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Perceptive, funny, and nostalgic, E.B. White's stroll around Manhattan remains the quintessential love letter to the city, written by one of America's foremost literary figures. The New York Times has named Here is New York one of the ten best books ever written about the metropolis, and The New Yorker calls it "the wittiest essay, and one of the most perceptive, ever done on the city.

Review:

"Just to dip into this miraculous essay-to experience the wonderful lightness and momentum of its prose, its supremely casual air and surprisingly tight knit-is to find oneself going ahead and rereading it all. White's homage feels as fresh now as fifty years ago." John Updike

Review:

"Here is New York, a lovely evocation of the spirit of the city, is even more a startlingly vivid picture of a particular time. You sweat with White in his un-air-conditioned 90-degree hotel room and walk down the streets of 1948. The ride is a great one; the writing is good enough to bottle." Luc Sante

Synopsis:

The author describes the sites and character of the city in 1949.

About the Author

“Thoroughly American and utterly beautiful” is how William Shawn, his editor at the New Yorker, described E. B. White’s prose. At the magazine, White developed a pure and plain-spoken literary style; his writing was characterized by wit, sophistication, optimism, and moral steadfastness. In 1978 he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for the body of his work. E. B. White died in 1985

Roger Angell is a writer and fiction editor at the New Yorker.
