Richard Goodman writes (and reads) A New York Memoir

by Darlyn Finch Kuhn on September 26, 2010

Richard Goodman’s new book, A NEW YORK MEMOIR, is out.  It’s fourteen essays that cover the thirty-five years he’s lived in New York–basically, a love letter to New York City.   Here’s what Susan Vreeland had to say:

“So much more than an engaging memoir of New York, this is a heart laid bare. One can learn much from this man who feels tender toward cobblestones and old women, nostalgic about a daughter’s childhood, frightened at the prospect of dying alone–a rare individual who, with honesty, sensuousness, and keen observation, turns yearning and remembrance into art.” –Susan Vreeland, author of Luncheon at the Boating Party and Girl in Hyacinth Blue

On Tuesday evening, October 12th at 6pm, Richard Goodman will be reading from A New York Memoir, at the New York Academy of Medicine, 1216 Fifth Avenue (at 103rd St.), New York City.
