Love(craft) and Marriage: A New York Story

As mentioned in previous posts, I am amidst writing a biography of iconic horror writer H.P. Lovecraft and his unsung New York years (1924-1926). Gotham, the official blog of the Gotham Center for New York City History, recently published an article distilling my ongoing research and offering a teaser of my forthcoming book.

I touch upon Lovecraft’s marriage to Sonia H. Greene, his urban explorations, his struggles as a Brooklyn renter, and his racist antipathy to non-WASP New Yorkers.
