The Great New York Novel?
As the day for my departure to New York approaches, I’m inundated with tips from friends about what to do in the Big Apple: where to eat, where to shop, what museums to visit, and what clubs to go to. Everybody has something to say. One almost gets the impression that I’m the last person in the country to visit New York.
I’m obviously very grateful for all these helpful tips, but there is still one aspect of the trip that’s unresolved: what should I read on the flight?
I’ve tried to compile a list of suitable literature, and here it goes:
- Paul Auster, The New York Trilogy
- Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
- J. D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye
- Tom Wolfe, The Bonfire of the Vanities
Any further suggestions for the ultimate literary New York experience are more than welcome.
