The best new fiction in NYC

The city that never sleeps never stops inspiring. And here's proof: 10 original New York stories from some of our favorite local writers.

If you doubted New York was still a hub for literary talent, think again: the Algonquin Round Table's got nothing on these contemporary creatives.
