"Goodbye To All That" Edited By Sari Botton

Book cover for essay collection "Goodbye to All That"
Seal Press

In the revised edition of the essay collection "Goodbye to All That," thirty writers share their own stories of loving and leaving New York, capturing the mesmerizing allure the city has always had for writers, poets, and wandering spirits.

Their essays often begin as love stories do, with the passion of something newly discovered. They also share the grief that comes like a gut-punch, when the grand metropolis loses its magic and the pressures of New York's frenetic life wear thin for even the most dedicated dwellers.

Editor of the collection, Sari Botton is the former essays editor for Longreads. She teaches writing courses at Catapult and in Bay Path University's MFA program.
