Description

‘Beautifully woven’ Sunday Times’Extraordinary city stories … ambitious and entertaining … [Taylor] does a fine job of telling the New York story’ GuardianA symphony of contemporary New York told through the magnificent words of its people – from the best-selling author of Londoners. In the first twenty years of the twenty-first century, New York City has been convulsed by terrorist attack, blackout, hurricane, recession, social injustice, and pandemic.

New Yorkers weaves the voices of some of the city’s best talkers into an indelible portrait of New York in our time – and a powerful hymn to the vitality and resilience of its people.

Vibrant and bursting with life, New Yorkers explores the nonstop hustle to make it; the pressures on new immigrants, people of colour, and the poor.

It captures the strength of an irrepressible city that – no matter what it goes through – dares call itself the greatest in the world.

Drawn from millions of words, hundreds of interviews, and six years in the making, New Yorkers is a grand portrait of an irrepressible city and a hymn to the vitality and resilience of its people.
