Synopsis

Only in New York, Darling! by Virginie Sommet

Edgier than the Lonely Planet, hipper than the Village Voice, more intellectual than the New York Times...I've found my Bible to carry me through the funkiest city on the planet! A trippy logbook written by a French girl from Normandy landing in Manhattan and slowly making it on her own as an uderground artist, this chronicle plunged me into the maze of New York City's daily life, its pleasures, risks, hassles, encounters and wonders. The language is incomparable, the narration fluid, the tone incisive, at times hilarious, and at times intimate and moving. Reflection of the New Yorkers'psychology, the necessary melting pot of cultures, and the virtues of immigration. The question of identity is featured at he heart of the rhetoric developped. It is New York that possesses us, never the opposite! The writer, she knows it by heart! Bravo! Catherine Vachon
