Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0312427832, Paperback)Amazon Best Books of the Month, April 2007: You don't have to be a New Yorker (or a dog owner) to appreciate Cathleen Schine's snapshot of city living in The New Yorkers. Her omniscient narrator--a delightful amalgam of Nora Ephron and Truman Capote--tells the tale of friends and neighbors on a single Manhattan block that is at once charming and arresting in its attention to the rhythms, frustrations, and welcome surprises that come with the urban territory. This novel is full of humor and romance, and Schine's bright, insightful prose blooms on every page. --Anne Bartholomew
