serendipitercoverSo I’ve been going crazy trying to get a copy of Gay Talese’s first book, New York: A Serendipiter’s Journey. It’s the one that sounds most like me. It’s just stories about people Gay met out and about, about curiosities he had, about questions he wondered and answers he discovered. Like, kind of my life story. There are two copies available, seemingly, in the world, and they run more than $600 each. So I decided maybe instead I simply have to write my own. About Atlanta. Well, okay, then. (The funny part, of course, is that I’m from New York.)
