    One thought on “The Cambridge Companion to the Literature of New York”

    1. I enjoyed this quite a bit. It's well-researched and the essay selection is well done. It's arranged chronologically through various genres, moving from the authors of the early days to the Age of Innocence to the bohemians to the modern days of poetry slams and musicians. Immigrant and ethnic literature are not ignored. Overall, a very solid review of New York-centric books.

    2. Great collection of essays exploring how literature evolved in New York. Whereas Writing New York is an anthology of literature, this book contextualizes the evolution of that literature. A must for anyone interested in regional literature.

    3. A fun collection of essays showing great insight into the literary history of the city. Naturally, I'm particularly pleased that the articles are not too heavily weighted on the twentieth-century end.

    4. Really looking forward to reading my fellow contributors' chapters! Thrilled to be part of this illustrious lineup.
