THE NEW YORKERS, A NOVEL
by Cathleen Schine
I think the best way to describe this book is "a romantic comedy with dogs." The setting is a neighborhood in New York City near Central Park. We meet a host of interesting characters living in the neighborhood and find out how their lives intersect. Many times, it is the dogs who help the neighbors meet one another. I enjoyed this pleasant novel. It really personalized New York City. The reader can understand how the city is really a collection of small towns. If you are a fan of rom-coms and dogs, I predict you will thoroughly enjoy this novel!
