Edmund WhiteMost of the unconditional admirers of New York are from elsewhere. People like me, who grew up in the Midwest in the 1950s, couldn't wait to trade in "the provinces" for the Big Apple, and half a century later we're still besotted with its incomparable vitality. But Michael Greenberg, a native New Yorker, loves the city as a child loves a parent, and in its honor he has put together a collection of tightly written, incisive chapters, each another tessera or tile in a big mosaic—and like tesserae, they are all placed at a slightly different angle to the light.
