Biography & Memoir - Published: 29/Feb/2016 - ISBN: 9781863958141

Vivian Gornick loves to walk - to absorb the drama, humor, and humanity of the New York City streets, to see 'the fifty different ways people struggle to remain human.' Gornick uses the metropolis as both her mirror and her muse as she examines the passage of her own independent life and the dilemma of connection in our time. Her closest walking companion is Leonard. As her discussions with Leonard play in her mind, she dismantles the idea of the anonymous city, finding solace on a crowded bus, among the pundits in Times Square, and watching a bank of lights go on at dusk in an adjacent apartment building.
