NEW YORK NEW YORK
If you can make it there you can make it anywhere, the song goes. For a tour of the ups and downs of alluring New York join three interested parties – Chanel Miller, Wallace Shawn, and Colson Whitehead. Know My Name memoirist Miller, a recent denizen, comes at the city with fresh eyes. In Essays, old-hand New Yorker Shawn reflects on living a life of privilege in a town populated by the underprivileged. And Whitehead, in his love song The Colossus of New York, captures the city’s promise and heartbreak in vignettes, meditations, and personal memories. In conversation with Jack Tame.
