The Last Fine Time In Buffalo

November 24, 2014

lastfinetimeAs much of the nation’s attention has been focused on Buffalo recently, we feel it’s the perfect occasion to suggest reading The Last Fine Time by the inimitable Verlyn Klinkenborg. It’s a delightful biography of a Buffalo neighborhood bar and its frequenters with an addition of poignancy that extends to Buffalo itself and all of America’s once-thriving cities that have fallen on tougher times. Portions of the book appeared originally in The New Yorker. If you’re unfamiliar with Klinkenborg, that’s a shame as he is as fine a non-fiction writer as you’ll come across. We hear he’s teaching at Yale currently. Hmmm.
