Goodbye to All That

ebook
From Roxane Gay to Leslie Jamison, 30 brilliant writers share their timeless stories about the everlasting magic — and occasional misery — of living in the Big Apple, in a new edition of the classic anthology

n the revised edition of this classic collection, thirty writers share their own stories of loving and leaving New York, capturing the mesmerizing allure the city has always had for writers, poets, and wandering spirits. Their essays often begin as love stories do, with the passion of something newly discovered-the crush of subway crowds, the streets filled with manic energy, and the sudden, unblinking certainty that this is the only place on Earth where one can become exactly who she is meant to be.


They also share the grief that comes like a gut-punch, when the grand metropolis loses its magic and the pressures of New York's frenetic life wear thin for even the most dedicated dwellers. As friends move away, rents soar, and love — still — remains just out of reach, each writer's goodbye is singular and universal, just like New York itself.
