|Real-life subway stories in Encounters with Strangers are brief yet entertaining–credit|
Looking for a fun read while commuting on the train? If you’re a straphanger or someone with a short attention span who wants instant gratification instead of waiting for the big finish of a novel, Nubia DuVall Wilson’s Encounter with Strangers is for you. Any person who’s lived in or been to New York will connect with these real-life scenes from the author’s life.
Derived from the blog by the same name, this short, fun read is organized into sections about life as it happens on the streets of NYC, subway stories, travel, and excerpts from the Wilson’s time in Taiwan. One of my favorite things about the book is that it makes sense in any order. Read vignettes about New York crazies, only-in-NYC moments, her escapades abroad, and even a few celebrity sightings. Skip from section to section through the book and it still makes sense.
Here is an excerpt from the subway chapter ––”Mind the Gap”–– in Encounters with Strangers by Nubia DuVall Wilson.
Stop, Drop, and Scream!
Order Encounters with Strangers on Amazon.com or through Barnes and Noble.
