Now Out on Amazon Kindle: NFT Collected Essays: 2005-2010 (posted:2/3/2011)
Follow NFT's intrepid editors as they poke, prod, and explore the cities they work, play, and (gasp) entertain their out-of-town friends in the brand new ebook Not For Tourists: Collected Essays 2005-2010. These 41 essays were selected from hundreds of essays written by NFT editors in New York, Paris, Chicago, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Boston, and San Francisco. The pieces in the collection start with the practical, such as how to entertain out-of-town guests ("WAIT...How Long Are They Staying," "Entertaining Crazy Uncle Charlie," and "...But My In-Laws Don't Drink"), where to find a place to cool off ("Air-Conditioned Chicago"), and what the best swinger's clubs are in NYC ("Swinging in the City"). But the collection is also lyrical (with pieces such as "Mott Havenly" and "La Vie En (Neon) Rose,"), bizarre ("Hoppily Ever After," "Safeway Identities"), gritty ("OTB: NYC's Daily Racing Forum," "Abandoned North Broad,") and, finally, hilarious ("The Get-Around Game" and "The Phanatic vs. Swoop: Showdown"). All together, these 40 pieces represent the best, weirdest, most eclectic offerings from NFT's local writers. Here's a post from Amazon's official Kindle blog. We hope you'll enjoy it. Curated by NFT founders Jane Pirone and Rob Tallia.
