9780099284741: The Bottom Of The Harbor (Vintage Classics)

After Joe Gould's Secret - 'a miniature masterpiece of a shaggy dog story' (Observer) - here is another collection of stories by Joseph Mitchell, each connected in one way or another with the waterfront of New York City. As William Fiennes wrote in the London Review of Books, 'Mitchell was the laureate of the waters around New York', and in The Bottom of the Harbor he records the lives and practices of the rivermen, with love and understanding and a sharp eye for the eccentric and strange. This is some of the best journalist ever written.

Review:

"Swift, razor-sharp characterisation, narrative suspense and the sparest, yet most penetrating description." (Evening Standard)

"The finest staff writer in the history of the New Yorker and one of the greatest journalists America has produced." (Times Literary Supplement)

"A superb volume of essays." (Sunday Tribune)

From the Back Cover:

Each of these stories by Joseph Mitchell is connected in one way or another with the waterfront of New York City. In The Bottom of the Harbor he records the lives and practices of the rivermen, with love and understanding and a sharp eye for the eccentric and strange. This is some of the best journalism ever written.
