Brooklyn Is

Southeast of the Island: Travel Notes

James Agee and Preface by Jonathan Lethem

A Fordham University Press Publication

For the first time in book form-a great writer's classic celebration of the essence of Brooklyn.Propulsive, lyrical, jazzy, and tender, its pitch-perfect descriptions endure even as Brooklyn changes; Agee's essay is a New York classic. Resonant with the rhythms of Hart Crane, Walt Whitman, and Thomas Wolfe, it takes its place alongside Alfred Kazin's A Walker in the City as a great writer's love-song to Brooklyn, and alongside E. B. White's Here Is New York as an essential statement of the place so many call home.
