Item Details

Baker & Taylor
This collection of short stories explores the lives and fates of New York urbanites--artists, prostitutes, saints, and sinners--as they struggle to cope with cramped Manhattan apartments, high rents, dead-end careers, and love. Reissue.

Simon and Schuster
Meet the denizens of New York City: artists, prostitutes, saints, and seers. All are aspiring toward either fame or oblivion, and hoping for love and acceptance. Instead they find high rents, faithless partners, and dead-end careers. But between the disappointments come snatches of self-awareness, and a strange beauty in their encounters with one another.
