Overview

Updated with sixteen new pages of quips, remarks and exchanges from the creators of overheardinnewyork.com.

The streets of New York are full of characters who don't mince words-or care who hears them. This collection presents some of the most outlandish real life conversations overheard on the sidewalk, in the subway, and at the next table. It's the Big Apple peeled, a hysterically unvarnished portrait of the city that never sleeps-and often neglects to think before it speaks in public.

Editorial Reviews

More than a few prominent authors have stocked their writings with comments overheard on the street or in restaurants. Even those of us without literary aspirations know that eavesdropping can be one of urban life's great secret pleasures. The denizens at www.overheardinnewyork.com have established themselves as inveterate busybodies eager to record the choicest of these outrageous comments for the world to share. This updated edition of their funfest Overheard in New York contains 16 additional pages of quips too funny to forget.
