I wonder if #summernightcity in NYC will still include Block Parties, Beach Parties, Playing In Fire Hydrants, Skelsie tournaments, Street Festivals and Shakespeare In The Park? #wanderingjune

Last year I read a wonderful book that explored grief. It was profound, shocking and sad. It lingers with me still. Recently the BBC World Book Club read it and the author was interviewed. They contacted me about submitting a question to the author! I did, and you can hear me here: (My question is posed at about the 8:10 mark of the video.)

I actually didn‘t like this book and I‘ve only kept it because I bought it in The Strand 😁. However it‘s very much #summernightcity - set in NYC in the 70s when arson and looting was rife and there were fires all over the Bronx....

Cinfhen Great pick!!! I didn‘t like the book much either but it really captures the prompt title perfectly 🏆 1d
Fridameetslucy FYI the Bronx is still burning 19h
BarbaraBB Is there anyone who liked this book? I have a copy but guess I‘ll never read it 19h

My dad passed away 20 days ago. Dad loved history, and NYC TV shows, so I think he would have loved a visit to the city. I have a small urn of his ashes, and I‘ve decided to take him on little East Coast excursions with me. I was in the wrong lane and ended up on the Brooklyn Bridge. I was annoyed at first, but then realized it was 15 minutes well spent if my dad got to experience the bridge.

Leftcoastzen Sometimes getting a little lost is a good thing.I think it‘s wonderful you are honoring him this way. I love NY, it‘s been a few years since I visited,hope to visit someday again. 2d
Avanders ♥️♥️ sorry for your loss. It‘s lovely to visit sites you know he would have appreciated 🤗🥰 2d

I confess I actually watched the movie version of this before reading the book. Both were highly entertaining and heartwarming. And the movie was very close to the book.

MrsMalaprop I did the book then the movie. Liked them both too 👍. 3d

The plot seemed a little too convenient, and I hated Lola.
