Never Can Say Goodbye

Writers on Their Unshakable Love for New York

Never Can Say Goodbye

Edited by: Sari Botton
From the editor of the celebrated anthology Goodbye to All That: Writers on Loving and Leaving New York, comes a new collection of original essays on what keeps writers tethered to New York City.

The “charming” (The New York Times) first anthology Goodbye to All That—inspired by Joan Didion’s classic essay about loving and leaving Manhattan—chronicled the difficulties and disappointments inherent in loving New York, while Never Can Say Goodbye is a celebration of the city that never sleeps, in the tradition of E.B. White’s classic essay, “Here Is New York.”

Featuring contributions from such luminaries as Elizabeth Gilbert, Susan Orlean, Nick Flynn, Adelle Waldman, Phillip Lopate, Owen King, Amy Sohn, and many others, this collection of essays is a must-have for every lover of New York—regardless of whether or not you call the Big Apple home.
