Giveaway: Life in New York

Summary: New Yorkers are as diverse as the city they so colorfully inhabit, cautious but generous, brash but welcoming. Both are captured through the comedic eye of Laura Pedersen. The author of bestseller Play Money and award-winning Buffalo Gal, Pedersen serves up a hilarious memoir about three decades of city life. Pedersen experiences her adopted city in the best and worst of times while becoming the youngest person to have a seat on the stock exchange, performing stand up comedy, and writing a column in The New York Times. Enjoy an uproarious romp down memory lane as the city emerges as the modern metropolis we know today.  -- Fulcrum Publishing

I can't think of any city I love more than New York! Every year that I visit the city for BEA, I have a wonderful time just soaking in the sights and sounds. So it shouldn't come as a surprise that the memoir LIFE IN NEW YORK: HOW I LEARNED TO LOVE SQUEEGEE MEN, TOKEN SUCKERS, TRASH, TWISTERS, AND SUBWAY SHARKS by Laura Pedersen appeals to me. This book is Ms. Pedersen's account of living in New York City for 30 years. She's experienced the good and the bad that the city offers while being the youngest person to have a seat on the stock exchange, performing stand-up, and writing for The New York Times.
