So here’s where we are: the Cambridge Companion to the Literatures of New York City has now become the Cambridge Companion to the Literature of New York City; the book is in production; and and we’re nearing the end of the copy-editing stage. In fact, we’re hoping to send the copy-edited manuscript back to Cambridge at the end of the day on Monday. We’ve been working via e-mail with a wonderful freelance copy editor, and happily most of her queries have been relatively minor. Kudos to all of the contributors, who have been really good about answering the queries promptly!

If you check out the volume’s listing on the Cambridge University Press site, you’ll see that it’s scheduled for March 2010, but our production editor is doing everything possible to speed it up so that we have a chance of ordering it for Writing New York next spring.

We’ll keep you posted …
