Erik Calonius, New York, 1975; from the Documerica series
New York Stories at The Morgan Library & Museum
With Quim Monzó, Darryl Pinckney, Roxana Robinson, and Colm Tóibín; moderated by Edwin Frank
New York seen from up close and afar by three great writers—Henry James, Edith Wharton, and Elizabeth Hardwick—who were inextricably attached to the city. Distinguished contemporary novelists and critics Colm Tóibín, Roxana Robinson, and Darryl Pinckney, who have edited the NYRB Classics editions of the New York stories of James, Wharton, and Hardwick respectively, and the contemporary Catalan writer Quim Monzó, who set his novel in New York, all consider the city and the stories it has inspired.
