"The millions of unseen things that happen inside the heart finally start to come clear in Ben Tanzer's The New York Stories. Everyone here -- from the teenage girls to the grown men trying to sleep with them, from the guy in therapy to the therapist -- is filled with a desire so painful it will make you ache. Come to Thirsty's and drink a Yuengling because it might be all there is. Ben Tanzer knows that what we love most is what destroys us and what makes us feel most alive. He's reached into our music collections and pulled out the soul and the funk and the loud guitars and set it to prose that pulls us all across the page. Be prepared to laugh and cry and be swept away." --Dave Newman, author of The Factory Poems
