    Bill Buford spends a wild night in the park; Jonathan Safran Foer envisions it as a tiny, transplanted piece of a mythical Sixth Borough; and Marie Winn answers definitively Holden Caulfield's question of where the ducks go when the park's ponds freeze over. There are bird sightings and fish sightings; Jackie Kennedy and James Brown sightings; and pieces by Colson Whitehead, Paul Auster, and Francine Prose. This vibrant collection presents Central Park in all its many-faceted glory, a 51-block swath of special magic.

    Bill Buford kündigt seinen Job als Literaturchef des berühmten Magazins The New Yorker, um ein Jahr lang in der Küche des Sterne-Restaurants Babbo Töpfe und Pfannen zu schrubben und vor allem: kochen zu lernen. Am Ende hat er vor allem eins begriffen: Gutes Essen fängt bei den Zutaten an. Und so beginnt eine obsessive Expedition durch Meisterküchen, die bei einem Metzger in Italien endet.
