New York Author Brings Life and
Love to the City with Stories

Steve Slavin  

New Yorkers are a unique breed of people, and author Steve Slavin, a resident of the city his entire life, pours his decades of personal experiences with a cast of characters into his new book, "To the City, with Love."

All of his short stories are about New Yorkers. Readers will learn about Lotharios, nymphomaniacs, traditionalists, sexists, idealists, fools, geniuses, sociopaths, perverts, celebrities, nerds, romantics, thieves, procrastinators, losers, savants, misfits, altruists, sex maniacs, depressives, and narcissists.

Slavin recalls that as he wrote some of his stories, he laughed, and sometimes he cried. Many of his stories were told to him by friends, relatives, and sometimes even by complete strangers.

A lawyer friend had a case involving two homeless veterans living in a subway tunnel who got hit by a train – and lived to tell about it. An itinerant college professor told him how he managed to get fired from more than a dozen teaching positions. A woman he knew had pulled the hands off the clock above the information booth in Grand Central Station at a peace demonstration protesting the Vietnam War.

A recovering economics professor, Slavin earns a living writing math and economics books. His short stories have appeared in dozens of literary magazines.       

Print and e-versions of To the City, with Love can be found at and as well as other online and bricks and mortar stores wherever books are sold.
