Read full description of the books:
An evocative homage to a post-war Manhattan childhood and to the magic of the city, from the beloved author of Making Toast and Kayak Morning
In the grand tradition of Alfred Kazin's A Walker in the City, E.B. White's Here is New York, and Frank McCourt's 'Tis comes this evocative and poignant memoir of Roger Rosenblatt's Manhattan boyhood.
On a cold winter day in 2011, Rosenblatt left the night class he taught at Stony Brook's Manhattan campus on East 28th Street and found himself, on a whim, on a walk through the territory of his childhood. Tramping from Gramercy Park to Irving Place and over and up to Madison Square Park, his stroll took him across the streets of the city, and through the byways and alleys of memory.
In a beautifully wrought series of vignettes that limn geographical and emotional landscapes, Rosenblatt evokes with rare precision a disappeared New York, the people who inhabited it, and the larger world of which it was a part. A moving meditation on what endures times' inexorable movement forward, The Boy Detective is both an homage to and an elegy for the city he loves.
