Novelist Bharati Mukherjee explores her own struggle with assimilation. Finally, Charles Simic remembers his thwarted attempts at "fitting in" in America.

    After the success of The Light of Paris, Jean-Michel Berts turns to the most photogenic city in the world, drawing on a style that is both personal and masterful. New York City is illuminated in each of Berts's ethereal photos, all taken at dawn, when the streets resonate with a mysterious life of their own. Both the city's greatest landmarks and its less-known treasures are captured here like never before & framed by the photographer's camera obscura. This sustained vision of New York City makes possible an astonishing 'seeing'/scene of the city - a penumbral phenomena infused with a dreamlike hauntedness, a spectacular presence etched into the sheer arc of imagined time. Catalog of Captions with Images. Illus., b&w photos. 132p.
