Village Voice's Description
At this Canadian store, dotted with many fine leather chairs for browsing/sleeping, fiction is organized by nationality. Although this is a fine place to spend an evening, it may be best to ignore the cute little restaurant area where you can buy a cup of tea for $7 or more.
This slender, portable volume is nothing less than a must-read. Not only are the contributors well-informed writers with powerful authorial voices.

This slender, portable volume is nothing less than a must-read. Not only are the contributors well-informed writers with powerful authorial voices. The contributors additionally provide vital historical context, trenchant analyses, and arguments that are provocative in the best sense of the word. Indeed, during these uncertain economic times, New York University's growth can occur in a sustainable fashion that invests in education, a range of workers, *and* the city of New York without potentially bankrupting the university, saddling students with unconscionable levels of debt, despoiling existing green space, and furthering overrunning a low-density neighborhood such as Greenwich Village.
Growth can be prudent, visionary, community-oriented, and eco-friendly. It can provide jobs in the building trades, be mindful of the responsibilities and burdens that hard-working students already face, draw upon the expertise of diverse faculty across units, and stay attuned to historical precedents from other eras of economic recession and depression.
The university administration is correct in stressing that NYU students are industrious and talented. There is no shame in having to work for one's education. It is, however, disturbing and problematic when any educational institution all but expects students to work multiple part-time jobs *and* simultaneously assume rather heavy debt loads.
