New Yorkers Zusammenfassung

New Yorkers: A City and Its People in Our Time Craig Taylor

Over the last 20 years, New York City has been convulsed by enormous challenges: terrorist attack, blackout, hurricane, recession, pandemic. New Yorkers is a grand portrait of the irrepressible city and a hymn to the vitality and resilience of its people. Craig Taylor spent years meeting New Yorkers - rich and poor, old and young, native and immigrant - and getting them to share indelible true tales. Here are the voices of those who propel the city each day - subway conductor, nurse, bodega cashier, electrician who keeps the lights on at the top of the Empire State Building - as well as unforgettable glimpses of the city, from the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade by a balloon handler to the Statue of Liberty by one of its security guards.

New Yorkers captures the strength of the city that - no matter what it goes through - dares call itself the greatest in the world.

New Yorkers Bewertungen

Praise for Londoners:
A splendid oral history of the city... On occasions Londoners attains a level of eloquence as beautiful and blue as anything to be found in the works of Jean Rhys or Samuel Selvon ... A remarkable volume * Guardian *
Craig Taylor tunes in to the multi-tongued, self-justifying noise of the streets. And he leaves us with a substantial account, not just of our imaginary riverside capital, but, more vividly, of himself: as inquirer, investigator, part of a long and valuable lineage * Observer *
A book to deepen your relationship with London and make you fall in - or out - of love with it all over again ... I can't tell you how much I enjoyed it * Evening Standard *
Memorable, funny and occasionally melancholy... a rich, satisfying tapestry of metropolitan life * Sunday Times *
Ranging from the shocking to the poignant, 80 London voices produce a vivid collage of this impossible city * Independent *
