The Wall Street Journal reviews WHEN HARRY MET MINNIE: A True Story of Love and Friendship by Martha Teichner

Cultural commentator and author Danny Heitman writes in his review “Tails of the City”:

Short and sweet, it’s ostensibly a memoir about an oddball canine romance. Its deeper subject, though, is the romance of cities, particularly New York, where the author has lived for decades. ...Her broadcasting experience has trained Ms. Teichner to write for the ear, a sensibility clearly evident in passages that make lovely music on the page. ...Ms. Teichner’s book is also—perhaps even largely—about other things. It’s a valentine to New York and a meditation on human friendship. ...As the world slowly emerges from the imposed isolations of Covid-19, “When Harry Met Minnie” is a timely refresher course in the power of community.

When Harry Met Minnie: A True Story of Love and Friendship is published by Celadon Books.
