Read full description of the books:
This was the first book of short stories I have ever read that felt like a novel at some points. The characters are interesting and the dialog seems real and the characters you come to know are people you want to know about. Marley and Elenor are the main ones and their stories only coincide for a moment, but the rest of everyone seems like they could all be living in the same building. Because this is a book about New York with "New York" in the title, there is something understood going in and that is one of the reasons this feels novelesque even though some of the short stories/chapters are about far off topics told from varying perspectives. Many of the stories seem to connect anyway but the story about Bruce Springsteen is one that I couldn't comprehend. It's a quick read and this book will probably rise to prominence again.
