“Chapter one. ”

“He adored New York City.
He idolised it all out of proportion. ”

Uh, no. Make that “He romanticised it
all out of proportion. ”

“To him,
no matter what the season was,

this was still a town
that existed in black and white

and pulsated to the great tunes
of George Gershwin. ”

Uh… no. Let me start this over.

“Chapter one. ”

“He was too romantic about Manhattan,
as he was about everything else. ”

 “He thrived on the hustle, bustle
of the crowds and the traffic. ”

“To him, New York
meant beautiful women

and street-smart guys
who seemed to know all the angles. ”

Ah, corny. Too corny
for a man of my taste.

Let me… try and make it more profound.

“Chapter one. He adored New York City. ”

“To him, it was a metaphor
for the decay of contemporary culture. ”

“The same lack of integrity to cause so
many people to take the easy way out…

… was rapidly turning the town
of his dreams…”

No, it’s gonna be too preachy. I mean,
face it, I wanna sell some books here.

“Chapter one. He adored New York City,

although to him it was a metaphor
for the decay of contemporary culture. ”

“How hard it was to exist in a society
desensitised by drugs, loud music,

television, crime, garbage…”

Too angry. I don’t wanna be angry.

“Chapter one. ”

“He was as tough and romantic
as the city he loved. ”

“Behind his black-rimmed glasses was
the coiled sexual power of a jungle cat. ”

I love this.

“New York was his town
and it always would be. “
