In today’s episode, we meet Rebecca McClanahan, author of eleven books, including her most recent release, “In the Key of New York City: A Memoir in Essays.”

Recipient of numerous writing awards, Rebecca shares what life was like–what she saw, felt, heard, tasted and experienced–while living in New York City from 1998 through 2009. She covers everything from the sounds and wonders of the setting to events that changed the world and her own life.

Abigail Thomas, New York Times bestselling author, comments on Rebecca McClanahan’s powers of observation, saying: “Rebecca McClanahan has such an intensely curious, observant, and highly intelligent mind that her take on anything would be interesting,” and of the book, she says: “particularly absorbing.”

We start the show with a reading from the essay, “Signs and Wonders,” where we hear the sounds of New York City artillery going off early in the morning.
