During summer, future New Yorkers look down through the water to aquaculture pens . The catastrophe in New York 2140 is unprecedented, but the book’s world-weary New Yorkers still feel as if they’ve seen it all before

During summer, future New Yorkers look down through the water to aquaculture pens, where fish churn; during winter, the canals freeze-temperatures in the future are more extreme-and people can go ice-skating, as long as they avoid the holes in the ice where harbor seals and muskrats come up for air. ( It was as though the streets had come back, one woman thinks. The catastrophe in New York 2140 is unprecedented, but the book’s world-weary New Yorkers still feel as if they’ve seen it all before. They’re keenly aware that their city has always been a destination for refugees fleeing disaster.

Greenwich Village is the setting for Ten Little New Yorkers, a tale of murder and mayhem as only Friedman can warble it and featuring his usual suspects, including Ratso - Dr. Watson to Kinky's singular Sherlock Holmes. As the clues and bodies pile up and the cops strong-arm Kinky as their man, he has to jump through hoops to find the real killer, all the while maintaining his outrage and, of course, his innocence. The murderer may be someone close to Kinky, which leads to a shocker of an ending that will surely take Kinky devotees completely by surprise.

The Shining is a horror novel by American author Stephen King. Published in 1977, it is King's third published novel and first hardback bestseller: the success of the book firmly established King as a preeminent author in the horror genre. The setting and characters are influenced by King's personal experiences, including both his visit to The Stanley Hotel in 1974 and his recovery from alcoholism.

Opening in 1943 and spanning over a decade, The New Yorkers is Hortense Calisher’s most ambitious novel. Judge Simon Mannix, a well-educated upper-middle-class New Yorker, is faced with a terrible decision when his unfaithful wife is accidentally shot and killed by their twelve-year-old daughter. Mannix insists upon keeping the truth a secret, claiming that the death was a suicide, as he attempts to save his child from a life of psychological trauma.

The New Yorkers : A Novel. The "New Yorkers" is a story about a group of people who live in New York City, but it is a story that could take place anywhere. The book follows these characters' emotional growth and relationships over the course of a year. I enjoyed this book immensely, despite its slow pace. And it didn't really matter, because it's the kind of novel you want to savor. Anywhere, that is, where a group of people who love dogs meet each other, and each other's pets in a neighborhood where pets are welcome and people are friendly.

Over the course of four seasons, they emerge from their apartments, in snow, rain, or glorious sunshine to make friends and sometimes fall in love.

A new novel by the author of Eat, Pray, Love, a former Jehovah’s Witness reflects on her faith and more. Nussbaum, the Pulitzer Prize-winning television critic for The New Yorker, makes a case for the critical cultural importance of TV. The essays in this collection are far-ranging, touching on everything from creative ambition and the shows that shaped her ( like Buffy the Vampire Slayer ), as well how to grapple with artists implicated in the movement. Kathleen Hale is a Crazy Stalker: Six Essays,’ by Kathleen Hale (Grove Press, June 4). This collection of essays arrives to some controversy.

An enchanting comedy of manners (with dogs!) from one of our most treasured writersCathleen Schine’s brilliantly funny new novel revolves around one city block in Manhattan, a quiet little block near Central Park kept humble by rent control. Living on a street like this in New York with a dog is like living in a tiny village, one that has a rhythm all its own. Dogs bring people together unexpectedly, people who would otherwise never meet. And the dogs act as cupids for the quiet, struggling, sometimes lonely, eccentric people, the old and the young, male and female; the people who live on the block, who are, in their ways, romantics, as all New Yorkers secretly tend to be. Walking her dog, Beatrice, Jody falls under the spell of Everett’s bewitching smile. Everett begins to appreciate his postdivorce life only when he falls in love with Howdy, Polly’s puppy. Polly lives with her brother, George, and wants him to fall in love. George isn’t so much looking for a love life as for life direction, and Howdy leads him right to it. Doris hates the trash on her block, she hates the pee on her SUV’s large tires, and, above all, she hates dogs. That is, until she gets one of her own.In The New Yorkers, as in life, canine companions compel their masters to go outside of themselves, to take part in the community they live in, to make friends, and, sometimes, to fall in love. And Schine returns to what she does best: crafting a compulsively readable, elegantly written novel that seduces in the way we were once seduced by The Love Letter, Schine’s beloved classic.

All accounts lead one to think the book is dog-centric. It's not. It is a look at how people are in their own worlds; their thoughts on others just formed and unchecked. Plus, honestly, not one character (the human interactions) here seems to have a healthy relationship with another. Boy, I sure hope folks are a tad more real emotionally and friend-wise...Also, very grating, was how the writer like to use that, "It was the best of times. It was the worst of times," swinging to and fro for her character's mood, ways, looks. By the 101010100th use you may want to throw the book...
OCARO
great look at the life of single people who own dogs - their daily routines, mating habits and dynamics. The characters are all odd balls at times seem unrealistic and flat. Yet, their anxieties and aspirations are totally human and often easy to relate to.
switching from one character plot line to another character plot line in mid paragraph was a bit annoying

I am in the process of reading all Cathleen Schine's books. She is quickly becoming my favorite author and I believe one of America's greatest novelist. The New Yorkers: A Novel, is a sensitive and engaging story reflecting Ms. Schine's ability to draw us into the lives of ordinary people with her intelligent humor and ability to make the ordinary genuinely intriguing. At first I was worried this was going to be a "dog fest"; but on the contrary. The relationships between these characters and their dogs are subtle. Schine draws us into the personality of the dogs and their owners to create a touching web that connects the storyline of this New York neighborhood with a unique skill and talent in a style similar to Ann Tyler's, Accidental Tourist. I actually find myself missing Beatrice (the matriarch, white pit bull) and can't believe how often I am sharing anecdotes and lines from this book with friends and family!!

Unusual story a bout lonely dog owning apartment dwellers in a single block in New York City. The dogs play larger roles than in most books.
RUL
A very easy read and despite its simplicity of syntax and easy to read descriptions, there is much depth to several of the characters. Definitely recommended, especially too dog lovers!
Nirn
What a charming book! A portrait of the intertwined lives of people and their dogs on a single street in New York. It's the kind of book that rekindles your faith in people - especially New Yorkers.

Full disclosure: I didn't get through the entire book, I only read about half of it. But that was so incredibly trite, boring and, quite frankly, not entertaining or though-provoking to me that I just stopped reading it. Hence the single star since, as a voracious reader, not being able to even read a book cover to cover is just bad.
Wonderful book - beautifully written with original, 3-dimensional characters. Great slice of New York.
