The Chintz Age: Tales of Love and Loss for a New New York

In seven stories and a novella, Ed Hamilton takes on the clash of cultures between the old and the new New York, as his characters are forced to confront their own obsolescence in the face of a rapidly surging capitalist juggernaut. 

From the East Village to Hell’s Kitchen, from the Bowery to Washington Heights—Hamilton weaves a spellbinding web of urban mythology. Punks, hippies, beatniks, squatters, junkies, derelicts, and anarchists, search for meaning and a place to make their stand in dive bars, cheap diners, flophouses, and shooting galleries.

Ed Hamilton is also the author of Legends of the Chelsea Hotel: Living with the Artists and Outlaws of New York’s Rebel Mecca. Both books will be available for purchase and signing.
