Review

I can't remember ever being disappointed with an Everyman's Library edition, and this collection of New York-themed short stories from their Pocket Classics series, is no exception. Containing  eighteen stories from some of the best fiction writers - John Cheever, Shirley Jackson, Junot Díaz, Maeve Brennan for instance - there are few areas or aspects of New York City that doesn't go unexplored in this collection.
