Summary
THE BOROUGH OF QUEENS in New York City is the most ethnically diverse locality in the United States. For two years, Warren Lehrer and Judith Sloan traveled the world by trekking through the streets of their home borough. This book (and its companion audio CD) documents the people they encountered along the way. First-person narratives are illuminated by strikingly direct photographs; innovative design differentiates points of view; and the authors' personal and historical observations bring context to these soulful narratives. In their native countries, these people belonged to all walks of life; now thrown together as neighbors, classmates, coworkers, enemies, and friends, they reflect on the good, the ugly, and the unexpected in the transformation of their lives. The stories, images, and sounds collected here resolve into a portrait of the ever-shifting future of America.
