Now that I've been living in Manhattan for almost three years, I've become fixated on literature that brings the city to life, whether it's historical fiction, social science, or classic novels. So it should come as no surprise that I've been eagerly anticipating the arrival of Ellen Horan's debut novel, 31 Bond Street. 31 Bond Street is a real-life location in Manhattan's Nolita, and if you happen to make the trip down there, you'll be sure to see coffee shops, boutiques, condo developments, and high-rises. Reading about the neighborhood as it was in 1857--carriages, corsets, brand-new townhouses, dirt roads--is pretty incredible. And the story itself, of a New York society dentist and his brutal murder, is salacious--even by 2010 standards.
