Summary
  • True stories from the Naked City a tour of the subterranean psyche of New York. Acclaimed fiction writer Thomas Beller culls a new volume of essays, vignettes, and tales of the city from the literary Web site Mr. Beller's Neighbourhood, one of the premier venues for the urban sketch on the Internet.
