Hailed by People magazine as “a sophisticated and witty valentine of a novel” and by The New York Times as “a perfect comedy,” Cathleen Schine’s The Love Letter was an instant classic. In The New Yorkers, she once again traverses the territory of the human heart, turning her imagination to a quiet little city block near Manhattan’s Central Park. In this community, we meet a music teacher named Jody who falls under the spell of her neighbor’s dazzling smile one fateful day while she is out walking her beloved dog, Beatrice. But the object of Jody’s newfound affection becomes smitten with a younger woman—whose youthful pup wins his heart as well. Not all of these New Yorkers are so captivated by canine companionship; cranky Doris is their nemesis, rallying support against dog owners in a comic frenzy. As these entwined storylines unfold, with surprising developments at every turn, The New Yorkers will enchant and delight every reader who loves New York, or dogs, or simply marvelous storytelling.
