From Herb Lester | Designed by Dan Cassaro
This beautiful guide documents 78 of New York's most significant and intriguing literary sights, from former flophouse hotels to fancy bars, all the while alerting the reader to new books, authors and of course places to explore. Our cast of characters includes some of Big Apple's most gifted word-slingers - Dorothy Parker, Damon Runyon, Norman Mailer, Mark Twain and A.J Liebling among them.
Most guides try to tell you everything there is to know about a city, Herb Lester just tell you how to enjoy it. Each city is researched the old-fashioned way: asking friends, acquaintances, cab drivers and concierges for their tips and then walking, tasting, sipping, and peering into doorways and down alleys. Each guide is printed in England on 100% recycled paper.
