Seeing a previous post with the name of NY's 2nd most storied borough reminded me of a great trilogy that has never received the respect it was due. Thomas Boyle's Brooklyn trilogy -- ONLY THE DEAD KNOW BROOKLYN, POST MORTEM EFFECTS and BROOKLYN THREE -- are three of the hardest, most acutely observed and best written novels ever done with a city as a subject. And, yes, that does include Kennedy's Albany, NY, novels.

Just amazing stuff. PB
