Few cities on earth exert New York’s pull on the literary imagination. There may be nothing like “Paris in the springtime”, or “a foggy day in London Town”, but for sheer page volume, neither of these can rival the city that never sleeps.
The culture of New York City is shaped by centuries of immigration, the city’s size and variety and its status as the cultural capital of the United States.
There have been several important literary movements flourishing in New York City.
The Harlem Renaissance established the African-American literary canon in the Unites States. African-Americans of the northward great migration and African and Caribbean immigrants converged in Harlem, which became the most famous center of Negro life in the United States.
The Literary Brat Pack was a term created by the media to refer to a group of young authors in the 1980s. In many ways, this nickname was meant pejoratively, yet the Brat Pack’s impact on literature and its vast popularity turned this nickname into an affectionate branding of the new wave of young minimalist authors.
New York has also been a flourishing scene for Jewish American literature.
Many contemporary writers are based in the city, many of whom live in the Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn, include Norman Mailer, Don DeLillo, Jonatham Safran Foer, Jonathan Lethem, Paul Auster, Siri Hustvedt, Thomas Pynchon and many others.
