From the bestselling author of Londoners.


In the first twenty years of the twenty-first century, New York City has been convulsed by terrorist attack, blackout, hurricane, recession, social injustice, and pandemic. New Yorkers weaves the voices of some of the city's best talkers into an indelible portrait of NYC, and the vitality and resilience of its people.


Vibrant and bursting with life, the book, six years in the making, explores the nonstop hustle to make it; the pressures on new immigrants, people of colour, and the poor.It captures the strength of an irrepressible city that - no matter what it goes through - dares call itself the greatest in the world.
