The Poets slice the Big Apple!
FROM THE INSIDE: NYC through the Eyes of the Poets Who Live Here.
“A shining testament from voices of truth and love for our world in these dystopian times.”
– Odilia Galván Rodríguez
“My desert island pick.”
– Grace Cavalieri
“A hymn of love to NYC by her greatest inhabitants – her poets”
– Rab Wilson
“This is the jungle, sung by its songbirds”
– Kevin Rabas
“‘NYC From the Inside’ is a gorgeous compendium: 179 poets you have and haven’t heard of,
generating almost 360 boisterous pages of pure joy and pure pain, comedy and memory,
satire and lament, lovers and haters, pizza and drinks and drugs and pavements.”
– Alicia Ostriker, New York State poet laureate from 2018 to 2021
