Author, editor, and renowned journalist Pete Hamill voices in his craggy, urban style a memory and loose history of Manhattan. This is definitely a nostalgic reminiscence--the author reels off childhood memories, family history, and city legends with a fond and misty backward glance. From the Dutch burghers of old New York to the chumps and Trumps of the current city, Hamill misses little in his wry accounting of a city he calls home. If you've never been to Manhattan, visit it through Hamill's eyes; if you live there, you'll either say "thanks for the memories," or, as New Yorkers are fond of saying, "fuggetaboutit!"
