Buffalo is a magical place to be and this anthology walks the reader through the decades. The newness of the city is electrifying and sits atop a glorious history of power, disappointment, artistic flair, racial injustice and spicy chicken wings—and Buffalo has the Niagara Falls in its backyard. Told through the eyes of more than 65 artists, writers, and residents, the essays will give readers a feel of the city, its good and bad sides, and why many people love calling Buffalo their home. The contributors include: Lauren Belfer, Wolf Blitzer, Marv Levy, John Lombardo, Mary Ramsey, Robby Takac, and many more.
Praise for Right Here, Right Now:
"...Absolutely one of the best books about Buffalo ever created—a genuinely essential book to be put on the same shelf as Lauren Belfer's City of Light and Verklyn Klinkenborg's The Last Fine Time and very few others. No literate Buffalo home should be without one." Buffalo News
