Fake Memoir Brings Deadly Shakespeare, Mean Librarian to Life
Bloomberg – “Adam Langer’s “The Thieves of Manhattan” is a knowing love letter to literature both high- and lowbrow. Libraries and bookstores are torched, agents and editors are depicted as ignorant cynics, yet the thrill of storytelling endures. The book’s unlikely hero is Ian Minot, a barista-slash- writer who arrives in New York from Indiana dreaming of the literary life. Endless rejection slips leave him bitterly disenchanted.”
