Through the Children's Gate: A Home in New York (Vintage) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Not long after Adam Gopnik returned to New York at the end of 2000 with his wife and two small children, they witnessed one of the great and tragic events of the citys history. In his sketches and glimpses of people and places, Gopnik builds a portrait of our altered New York: the changes in manners, the way children are raised, our plans for and accounts of ourselves, and how life moves forward after tragedy. Rich with Gopniks signature charm, wit, and joie de vivre, here is the most under-examined corner of the romance of New York: our struggle to turn the glamorous metropolis that seduces us into the home we cannot imagine leaving.

Synopsis:

Gopnik, bestselling author of "Paris to the Moon" and writer for "The New Yorker," does for New York what he did for Paris in this collection about life, art, and family.
