There are a host of critics who praise the book rather excessively, all of whom are New York-based, which seems to me likely to be biased. So many New Yorkers (by which I mean Manhattanites) think all good things emanate from their island. That there is so much previously unpublished information on FLW's connection to NYC that it calls for a re-writing of history, I find unconvincing. His connection in 1909, for instance, would have been inevitable, since he shipped out to Europe through there, but how does that constitute an influence on his work?
