A New York Times Book Review Editors'
Inspired by her account in The New Yorker of adopting a
profoundly troubled dog named Buster, acclaimed author Cathleen
Schine''s The New Yorkers is a brilliantly funny story of
love, longing, and overcoming the shyness that leashes us. On a
quiet little block near Central Park, five lonely New Yorkers find
one another, compelled to meet by their canine companions. 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 love letter to a city full of surprises, The New
Yorkers is an enchanting comedy of manners (with dogs!) from
one of our most treasured writers.
