NYC Writers’ Haunts, Etc

Thanks to the dears over at The Millions, this came to my attention: a gaggle of British authors name their favorite words. Capital! Look them over, if you will. They are jolly good yokes. The only question that remains is – are they in English though?

(Spoiler – Hilary Mantel’s is nesh. ‘Natch!)

Meanwhile, Flavorpill associates famous writers with different neighborhoods in the Big Apple. The list is fairly entertaining. Here’s a teaser. Kerouac, Ginsburg, Corso, and Burroughs all lived in the Hotel _____.

And don’t neglect this riveting interview with Frank Cassese, the author of the existential debut novel Ocean Beach. Read it now at English Kills Review.
