Philip Gould is an unfettered scholar of New York City. These essays comprise spontaneous details of Gould's encounters with his old friend and confident-the wise and talented city of New York. The city is also his birthplace as well as that of his parents and his children. When he travels outside New York, the city travels within him, extending and further informing his considerable passion and knowledge for art and the art of collecting.

When not traveling, Gould writes an essay titled "A Trip Around the World in 12 Hours" in which he can say: "In one afternoon, I touched bases with half a dozen Asian cultures, visited two flea markets, got legal advice, bought some quality beads, refreshed my palate, indulged my senses with an exotic musical treat, and got home too late to take on another meal."

In these essays, Philip Gould expresses a New Yorker's unceasing new perspectives on the subjects of family, friends, collecting African and Asian textiles and ceramics, art criticism; food, street-level observations, and travel.
