Forever by Pete Hamill

"Forever" by Pete Hamill - Pete Hamill is the quintessential New Yorker. A journalist and writer who has written much about the city, he's probably the one person who should try to write a novel about the history of New York City. In "Forever" he tells the story of the city through the eyes of Cormac O'Connor, an Irishman who comes to the city at the age of 16 during the year 1740. Mortally wounded while protecting a slave who is an African shaman, he is given eternal life as long as he never leaves the island of Manhattan. Cormac watches the city grow from a small town to the metropolis it is today and interacts with many of the city's most famous denizens over the centuries. If you're a New Yorker or want to learn more of the city's history, this is one you might want to grab.
