Reviews

'Michael Greenberg, a native New Yorker, loves the city as a child loves a parent, and in its honour he has put together a collection of tightly written, incisive chapters, each another tessera or tile in a big mosaic ... Michael Greenberg is an acute observer' Edmund White, New York Times 'Greenberg is a poet of New York, evoking in these fleeting pieces the city in all its scuffed and squalid grandeur' Washington Post 'They are short snapshots of memoir, beautifully observed ... This is the perfect bedside book split, as it is, into neat insomniac chunks' Scott Pack, Me and My Big Mouth 'Imagine The Talk of the Town as if written by Dostoyevsky' New York Times Book Review
