Meet Roger Rosenblatt
The Boy Detective: A New York Childhood (Ecco, November 5, 2013). In a beautifully wrought series of vignettes, Rosenblatt evokes with rare precision a disappeared New York, the people who inhabited it, and the larger world of which it was a part. A moving meditation on what endures times’ inexorable movement forward, his memoir is both an homage to and an elegy for the city he loves. Roger Rosenblatt’s essays for Time and The NewsHour on PBS have won two George Polk Awards, a Peabody, and an Emmy. He is the author of fifteen books, including the national bestsellers Making Toast, Rules for Aging, and Lapham Rising. His Children of War won the Robert F. Kennedy Book Award. He and his wife live in Quogue and Maryland.
