About this title


From Coney Island to the Heights, from the 1850s to the present, here is the essence of Brooklyn. This diverse anthology includes the work of such notables as Truman Capote, Cristina Garcia, Spike Lee, William Styron, Walt Whitman, and Thomas Wolfe. "Testaments to the mythic place Brooklyn was, and in many ways continues to be."--New YorkDaily News.


"Lively, affectionate, moving pieces by the natives and transplants who have made Brooklyn one of America's great literary landscapes." -- Tallahassee Democrat

"Intelligently conceived and intelligently executed ... a portrait of the borough as it might have been edited for William Shawn's New Yorker." -- Boston Sunday Globe

"There's plenty of gems ... one of the best is Capote's evocation of the Heights and those first sentences: 'I live in Brooklyn. By choice.' " -- New York

"Testaments to the mythic place Brooklyn was, and in many ways continues to be."--New YorkDaily News.
