Mark Helprin, Bill Buford, and others
Jennifer Van Dyck, L.J. Ganser, Edoardo Ballerini, Scott Aiello, Scott Brick, Jonathan Davis, Steven Crossley, and Jeff Woodman
Nineteen literary greats share their private passions for the world's most famous park. A wild night outdoors with Bill Buford. A football tradition with Nathaniel Rich. A jog around the reservoir with Mark Helprin as he "protects" Jacqueline Onassis from imagined harm. The 843 carefully planned acres of Central Park have not only crept into the hearts of its 38 million annual visitors, but also into the life and work of a diverse array of writers who come to revel in its natural remedy for urban chaos.
