What defines Boston? Its history? Its landmarks? Its sportsteams and shrines?
Perhaps the question should be, who defines Boston? FromHenry David Thoreau to Dennis Lehane, Boston has been beloved by many ofAmerica's greatest writers, and there is no better group of men and women tocapture the heart and soul of the Hub. In Our Boston, editor AndrewBlauner has collected both original and reprinted essays from Boston-areawriters past and present, all celebrating the city they love. In the wake ofthe Boston Marathon bombing, they responded to his call to celebrate this greatcity by providing almost all brand-new works, and forgoing royalties in orderto support the survivors and their families.
From Mike Barnicle to Pico Iyer, Susan Orlean to GeorgePlimpton, Leigh Montville to Lesley Visser, Pagan Kennedy to James Atlas, hereis a collection of the best essays by our best writers on one of America'sgreatest cities.
