New York in Literature

Book Culture

"New York is a city that is omnipresent in literature, so much so that if a catastrophe ever occurred one would be able to re-create its sidewalks, dance clubs, and subway stations, its love affairs and robberies, even the shadow projected by a restless fly on a rain-soaked umbrella, through what its inhabitants write about."
Ilan Stavans, On Borrowed Words
