The Bottom of the Harbor

By: Joseph Mitchell (author)Paperback

More than 4 weeks availability


After Joe Gould's Secret - 'a miniature masterpiece of a shaggy dog story' ("Observer") - here is another collection of stories by Joseph Mitchell, each connected in one way or another with the waterfront of New York City. As William Fiennes wrote in the "London Review of Books", 'Mitchell was the laureate of the waters around New York', and in "The Bottom of the Harbor", he records the lives and practices of the rivermen, with love and understanding and a sharp eye for the eccentric and strange. This is some of the best journalist ever written.
