Vanishing New York

“Moss, a cantankerous defender of the city he loves, chronicles its disconcerting metamorphosis from cosmopolitan melting pot to bland corporate lounge with passion and vigor; New York is lucky to have him on its side.” – Alexandra Schwartz, The New Yorker

“a loving and cranky tour that swerves through the destructive path of New York’s gentrification craze… I love this book.” – John Freeman, Lit Hub

“I haven’t read a more impassioned book in over a decade.” – Gary Shteyngart

The Nostalgist

“Like Joseph O’Neill’s Netherland, Griffin Hansbury’s lyrical, solidly crafted novel brings you deep into the fabric of New York City and right into the minds of ordinary New Yorkers who are actually more extraordinary than they think. Hansbury captures the very weird post-9/11 months with honesty, humor, precision, and heart.” – Mike Albo, author of The Underminer

“an exceptionally engaging debut.” – Richmond Times-Dispatch

Day for Night

“Fully plugged into the contemporary scene, Griffin Hansbury’s poems are tingling with the voltage of city culture.” – Billy Collins, former U.S. Poet Laureate

“Day for Night is a strikingly good and compassionate book.” – Eileen Myles, author of Chelsea Girls
