New York City is not only The New Yorker magazine's place of origin and its sensibility's life blood, it is the heart of American literary culture. Wonderful Town, an anthology of superb short fiction by many of the magazine's most accomplished contributors, celebrates the 75-year marriage between a preeminent publication and its preeminent context with this collection.
Wonderful Town touches on some of the city's famous places and stops at some of its more obscure corners, but the real guidebook is to the hearts and the minds of those who populate the metropolis built by its pages. New York is every great and ordinary place. Each life in it, and each life in Wonderful Town, is the life of us all.
"Wonderfully rich and textured." (The Philadelphia Inquirer)
"An anthology that makes you remember why the magazine has long had a reputation for literary excellence." (Chicago Tribune)

Great stories and readers, but technically sloppy
Only mildly interesting ...
