About this title


"Half my time and energy as a New Yorker is given to keeping all aspects of the outside world outside; to such a degree that it might seem as if I were manning the walls of some medieval fortress, the only difference being that the Goths, and the Huns, and the other marauding hordes of centuries past had nothing on, say, those restaurant guys who shove menus under your door. . . ."

Thousands of readers first discovered Danny Drennan through his addictive on-line weekly wrap-ups of Beverly Hills 90210. Now here are his manic, wickedly funny stream-of-consciousness riffs on the uncelebrated but all-too-familiar daily dramas that could only take place in New York City. The trauma of brunch on the Upper West Side, the secret society of snooty dog owners, the diabolical subway-token clerks, the neighbor upstairs who perpetually carries trash in to the apartment but never out: Drennan chronicles his misadventures in the urban mosaic with comic edginess, irreverence, and a sardonic wit that are unmistakably his own.

The New York Diaries draws us into the singular world of Daniel Drennan--and announces the arrival of an irresistible new writer.
