Praise
"Readers who pick up NEW YORK should be warned not to turn the pages asking, ?Is it true?'....[A]nalyzing the veracity of every incident will spoil the fun, and what makes this novel so entertaining is the riotous, multilayered portrait of a whole metropolis. Rutherfurd offers the reader a chance to watch a rural outcrop grow into one of the world's greatest cities in a mere 350 years. He delivers magnificently on the challenge; it is hard to imagine any other writer combining such astonishing depth of research with the imagination and ingenuity to hold it all together."
From the Publisher
Annotation Epic historical writer Edward Rutherfurd concluded his two-novel Dublin Saga in 2006, and now turns towards America's greatest city for another sprawling yarn that spans generations and paints a grand and vivid portrait of a particular place throughout history. Rutherfurd takes several quintessential American families--Dutch, Italian, Irish, Jewish, and African-American--and spins out their family histories, adventures, trials, and tribulations from the times of the first colonies in "New Amsterdam" to the terrorist attacks of September 11.
Editors Note A tale set against a backdrop of New York City's history from its founding through the September 11 attacks traces the experiences of characters from all walks of life who witness such periods as the Revolutionary War, the city's emergence as a financial giant and the Gilded Age. Simultaneous.
