Synopsis: [Edited by Andrew Blauner]
[**Written by Various Authors]
[*Read by Various Readers]

What defines Boston? Its history? Its landmarks? Its sports teams and shrines? Perhaps the question should be, who defines Boston? From Henry David Thoreau to Dennis Lehane, Boston has been beloved by many of America's greatest writers, and there is no better group of men and women to capture the heart and soul of the Hub. In Our Boston, editor Andrew Blauner has collected both original and reprinted essays from Boston area writers past and present, all celebrating the city they love. In the wake of the Boston Marathon bombing, they responded to his call to celebrate this great city by providing almost all brandnew works. From Mike Barnicle to Pico Iyer, Susan Orlean to George Plimpton, Leigh Montville to Lesley Visser, Pagan Kennedy to James Atlas, here is a collection of the best essays by our best writers on one of America's greatest cities. [**Authors included are: André Aciman, Jabari Asim, James Atlas, Mike Barnicle, Madeleine Blais, Bud Collins, George Howe Colt, Kevin Cullen, Hugh Delehanty, Leslie Epstein, Israel Horovitz, Pico Iyer, Pagan Kennedy, Dennis Lehane, Bill Littlefield, Charles McGrath, David Michaelis, Tova Mirvis, Leigh Montville, Susan Orlean, Robert Pinsky, George Plimpton, Katherine A.

From the Back Cover: PRAISE FOR OUR BOSTON

"Like the remarkable city to which they pay tribute, the pieces assembled in this book are diverse, engrossing, illuminating, emotional, funny — and glorious. Anyone who loves or has ever loved Boston will want a copy." — Claire Messud, author of The Emperor’s Children and The Woman Upstairs

"Our Boston gives us skilled, knowing, warm, observant writers who embrace the city personally, pointedly, suggestively, and in so doing, tell us so very much about our country, ourselves. Their Boston is a telling reminder of a nation's story." — Robert Coles, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Children of Crisis and The Call of Service

"Read this book if you have ever lived in Boston and want to remember the unique pull of the place; if you've never lived in Boston and want to understand its unusual charm; if you currently live in Boston and want to see reflected in these pages a metropolis that thrums with innovation and warmth at the same time." — Lauren Slater, author of Opening Skinner’s Box

"This book is for anyone who remembers the Combat Zone and Filene's Basement and the old, un-air-conditioned Garden, who knows where they were in the summer of '67 and the winter of '78 and the fall of '04, who waited in line for Steve's Smoosh-ins in Somerville and still goes to the original Dunkin' Donuts in Quincy. It's also for anyone who loves great writing and learning about the lives of great writers. It's an absolute gem of a book — as perfect as a Legal lobster dinner or a Toscanini's sundae." — Seth Mnookin, author of The Panic Virus and the New York Times bestseller Feeding the Monster: How Money, Smarts, and Nerve Took a Team to the Top

"A distinguished, eloquent, and deeply felt testimony evoking not only the shadow on our hearts, but also the resolve and vitality of this great American city." — Alec Wilkinson, author of The Ice Balloon
