Also, I made a playlist! It loosely chronicles some of the passions and obsessions in my new novel, Live at Roseland, which is mostly set in 1990.
I’m late to this book, Goodbye to All That: Writers on Loving and Leaving New York, edited by Sari Botton, but I’m into it. Mainly because it makes me want to write a response essay about why I stubbornly?, stupidly?, intentionally? stay. I started that essay and bored even myself, and then John Devore’s “New York Doesn’t Love You” came along and blew the whole conversation about why folks leave or stay in New York up. Enjoy!
Lastly, here are some fun facts about New York city. Wouldn’t it be cool if I could send this little blog post to you in a pneumatic tube? Or what if we all had to move on the same day?! And remember, there are bodies everywhere!
