Summary
"Gets right to the heart of what it feels like to be a New Yorker--slightly insane, broke, and madly in love. These essays made me laugh out loud with recognition. New York City isn't an easy place to live, but is anything easy really worth doing?" --Emma Straub, author of The Vacationers

The follow-up to the award-winning anthology Goodbye to All That, Never Can Say Goodbye is an exuberant celebration of New York, featuring contributions from luminaries such as Elizabeth Gilbert, Susan Orlean, Rosanne Cash, Nick Flynn, Whoopi Goldberg, Phillip Lopate, Owen King, Amy Sohn, Alexander Chee, and many others. These essays take place in dive bars and museums, cinemas and old restaurants, horse-drawn carriages and subway cars, capturing the true essence of life in New York. Never Can Say Goodbye is ultimately a love letter to the Big Apple and a must-have for every lover of New York--regardless of whether or not you call the city home.
