Critical Praise

"Hamill's long history as a New York journalist, his knowledgeable love for the city and his writerly exuberance explode here into a New York fantasy: big, extravagant, untrammeled and as hugely readable as it must have been hugely entertaining to write."

——Washington Post Book World

"A true Hamill piece: by turns fascinating [and] sentimental…in the best New York mode."

——Kirkus Reviews

"Veteran journalist-cum-novelist Pete Hamill composes a fantastical ode to the city that never sleeps."

——Entertainment Weekly
