This hip insider's view of human foibles and triumphs amid the lonely maelstrom of big city life in New York City is a treasure of beautiful language and sharp observations. Whitehead rambles through the major districts of the city like a poet, taking in all, missing nothing in his paean to his beloved home. The author voices his piece with a relaxed and melodic ease, never overindulging or overacting; instead he eases us into the hearts and minds of New Yorkers of every stripe and color. Enjoy this love letter to a great city. D.J.B. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 04]
