"New Yorkers: A City and Its People in Our Time" (Encore)

new-yorkers-book.jpg
Aired on Friday, June 16th.

(Note: This interview first aired back in March.) In the first two decades of the 21st century, New York City has experienced a terrorist attack, a blackout, a hurricane, an historic recession, widespread social injustice, and, of course, the COVID-19 pandemic. How has all of this affected the lives of New Yorkers? Our guest is the bestselling author Craig Taylor, whose book draws on years of interviews with hundreds of NYC residents in order to render an indelible group portrait of the city. Per Publishers Weekly: "[This is] an engrossing, multihued 'oral portrait' of New York City as told by the people who live there.... Expertly edited and arranged, these striking snapshots make clear that in New York, 'the people are the texture.' Admirers of the Big Apple will be enthralled."
