Editorial Reviews

Gill
Singular and beautiful…it is a small book and an immense achievement.
—Brendan Gill, The New Yorker
From Barnes & Noble
This intimate, intense, and lyrical memoir written in the late 1940s recounts the author's life as a young man, beginning in the Brooklyn Jewish neighborhood of Brownsville and moving on to the larger world of Manhattan and beyond. Here's a touching account of "Old New York," from the corners of Kazin's home kitchen to the synagogue and the drugstore, to the subways and streets of Brooklyn and "the city." The author's poignant observations of the people in his life, the neighborhood personalities, the chronicle of his love for learning, and the long-gone and still existing landmarks of the infamous borough are a make for a unique autobiography touched with New York City history. By the author of A Lifetime Burning in Every Moment. Black-and-white illustrations.

    A Well-Worn Path Well Visited

    The journey from Brooklyn to Manhattan appears on any map to be measurable in mere miles. But when considered as passage from a daily struggle for rent, dinner and a somnabulant few hours of mass entertainment across the bridge to cosmopolitan engagement with art, politics and history, it defies quantification. The Web has made this whimsical book utterly metaphorical; all to the good, I think.
