New York Echoes 2
Short StorieseBook - 2011
Acclaimed author Warren Adler revisits his New York City roots in 21 vividly rendered stories, revealing New York as the heartbeat of the nation, where creativity resides in every nook and cranny, and energy pulses through the pavement to infuse its denizens. As in his celebrated novels, Adler's themes in New York Echoes 2, deal primarily with intimate human relationships-the mysterious nature of love and attraction; the fragile bonds between husbands and wives, parents and children; the divide between generations; the obsessive pursuit of the creative artist and the emotional toll it exacts. In these stories, past memories collide with present realities; fantasies don't always live up to their promise; death makes men of boys; and a guilty conscience takes its own revenge. Every hallmark of Warren Adler's fiction is in evidence in the second installment of New York Echoes-in powerful stories that reflect a special understanding of the human condition as seen through the eyes of one of America's most prolific authors. Above all, these radiant tales are a celebration of the short story and of an author's return to his much-loved, dearly missed native city.
