As in his celebrated novels, Adler's themes in NEW YORK ECHOES deal primarily with intimate human relationships-the mysterious nature of love and attraction; the fragile bonds between husbands and wives, and parents and children; the divide between generation; the obsessive pursuit of the creative artist and the emotional toll it exacts. In these stories, past memories collide with present realities; with first love comes first betrayal; chance encounters have unexpected consequences; and the devastating impact of 9/11 refuses to fade, wreaking havoc years after the tragedy.
All of the hallmarks of Warren Adler's fiction are everywhere in evidence in NEW YORK ECHOES in powerful stories that reflect a special understanding of the human condition as seen through the eyes of one of America's most prolific authors. Above all, these radiant tales are a celebration of the short story and of an author's return to his much-loved, dearly missed native city.

Having lived in the City at an earlier time in my life, I could relate to many of the people portrayed and events in these stories. Once again, Adler has captured the human condition in all forms. I always find his diversified subject matter very refreshing. And the echoes of the past reverberate throughout.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
