The Tallest Doll in New York City

By Maria Dahvana Headley
The Tallest Doll in New York City by Maria Dahvana Headley digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

Nebula Award-nominated author Maria Dahvana Headley has always loved Damon Runyon's stylized faux-reporting on New York City. This is her version of a Runyon tale—this one dealing with the architectural guys and dolls of New York City—and a valentine to all the beautiful buildings she knows.

It's Valentine's Day, 1938, and the Chrysler Building's tired of waiting on the corner of Forty-second and Lex for a certain edifice to notice her. Here's the story of what might happen if two of New York's greatest creations met on a day built for romance.

This short story was acquired and edited by editor Liz Gorinsky.

At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
