Read full description of the books The Subway Chronicles: Scenes from Life in New York:Some seven million people board the New York City subway every day, each one with a story to tell. The Subway Chronicles collects twenty-seven of the tales, dramas and comedies that unfold during the daily commute. From the “mole people” living in the subway tunnels, to the transit employees working behind the scenes, to the locals and tourists riding shoulder-to-shoulder in harmony, discord, or indifference, The Subway Chronicles offers a kaleidoscope of perspectives on this most public of spaces.Prominent New York writers weigh in:
Jonathan Lethem confesses his childhood subway sins
Colson Whitehead offers mass-transit tips for newcomers to the city
Francine Prose recalls the thrill and apprehension of riding alone as a teenage girl
Calvin Trillin pokes fun at the classic New York tendency to be skeptical about everything
Stan Fischler delights in memories of riding the open-air train cars to Coney Island as a boy
Equal parts hilarious, poignant, and heartbreaking, The Subway Chronicles is a journey into New York’s underground with some of today’s most loved writers.
Read information about the authorMy first book, The Subway Chronicles: Scenes from Life in New York, was published in 2006 (Penguin/Plume). It’s a collection of essays about the crazy, sad, thoughtful things that can happen riding the New York City subway system. I recently finished my first novel which is tentatively titled We Happy Few. While I’m putting the finishing touches on it, I post random thoughts on my blog.
I live in Brooklyn, NY, in a 5th floor walk-up. You might think this keeps me in shape. It doesn’t.
The best movie ending ever is Cinema Paradiso. Hands down.
I keep a stack of books near my bedside that I’d like to read, but couldn’t possibly finish in a lifetime. From time to time I post book reviews and other writerly thoughts on my blog.
The red velvet cake from Cake Man Raven makes me very happy; if you’re ever in New York City, get yourself a slice. You won’t be sorry.
Sometimes I edit other people’s novels. I like it, my rates are reasonable and people tell me that I’m good at it. Check my editing site for more information: http://www.jacquelincangro.com
My dog, an English Springer Spaniel, was adopted from the NY ACC. He does goofy things. I write about them.
