Acclaimed author Warren Adler focuses his laser eye on New York City in these 21 vividly rendered short stories revealing New York as the heartbeat of America, where creativity resides in every nook and cranny, and energy pulsates through its pavements and infuses its denizens, inveterate New Yorkers.

In a continuation of NEW YORK ECHOES, Adlerís themes in NEW YORK ECHOES 2 deal primarily with intimate human relationshipsóthe mysterious nature of love and attraction, the fragile bonds between husbands and wives, and parents and children; the divide between generations; the obsessive pursuit of the creative artist and the emotional toll it exacts. In these stories, past memories collide with present realities and chance encounters have unexpected consequences.

All of the hallmarks of Adlerís fiction are at play in NEW YORK ECHOES 2, and delivered through these powerful stories that reflect a special understanding of the human condition as seen through the eyes of one of Americaís most prolific authors. Above all, these radiant tales are a celebration of the short story and of an authorís return to his much-loved, dearly missed native city.
