New York Magazine on The Age of Innocence

Sam Anderson, writing for New York Magazine, was asked to choose the “New Yorkiest” novel ever written…and chooses, perhaps counter-intuitively, The Age of Innocence.  Given my glowing review of that novel, and specifically how I liked it, I really enjoyed reading his perspective on it: I encourage you to have a look (especially if, unlike me, you’re familiar with New York City in real life) and to offer comments here on whether or not Anderson’s thesis rings true for you.  As much as I liked the novel, I’m not entirely sure he sells me on his pick, but given my ignorance on the topic, I’m hoping to get other perspectives.
