Up in the Old Hotel

From the margins of a forgotten New York and covering the waterfront, collects: 'McSorley's Wonderful Saloon', 'Old Mr. Flood', 'The Bottom of the Harbor', 'Joe Gould's Secret' and half a dozen previously uncollected pieces by the author Salmon Rushdie calls the "buried treasure" of American writing; portraits of street preachers, gypsies, a bearded lady, a 93-year-old "seafoodetarian" planning to live another two decades, and saloon-keepers who say things like, "He didn't see any reason mixing whiskey with water since it is already wet."
