“Every one of us lives a life we did not expect to live. We begin with passions and dreams and with the basic conviction that all will turn out for the good, more or less. Some of it does turn out for the good. Most of it, though, is a startling combination of the unexpected and the inconceivable. Every door we walk through introduces us to a strange land, and then we set about seeing if this is a place where we can grow.
        For me, New York City has been the great opened door.”

A New York Memoir (New Brunswick, NJ: Transaction Publishers, 2010), introduction, xii.
