New York seen from up close and afar by three great writers who were
inextricably attached to the city. Henry James, a native, left New York
early and returned to it only late in life, but the city haunts his work. Edith
Wharton is one of the great chroniclers of New York society, high and low.
Elizabeth Hardwick, a transplanted Kentuckian, cast her keen eye on the
life of the city in the latter half of the twentieth century, when it established
itself as the intellectual center of American life. Distinguished contemporary
novelists and critics Colm Tóibín, Roxana Robinson, and Darryl Pinckney,
who have edited the New York stories of, respectively, James, Wharton,
and Hardwick, and the contemporary Catalan writer Quim Monzó,
who set his novel in New York, all consider the city and the stories it has
inspired.
