|Including what Gore believes is 'THE New York Novel':
The Golden Spur by Dawn Powell
Readers are now finding Powell's wonderfully tough novels, and in this late one (1962), she re-creates the golden age of Manhattan, as a young man from the hinterlands comes to town to find the allegedly famous man who got his mother pregnant. This is probably the New York novel -- 'Greenwich Village Transfer,' you might say -- and wildly funny, funny with a true wit's wildness.
