New Yorker writer Adam Gopnik and his wife-to-be, Martha, moved from his native Montreal to New York City at the very beginning of the 1980s and began their boho existence in a basement apartment as the decade of excess was just beginning to ramp up. It's a time Gopnik recalls fondly, and in detail, in At the Strangers' Gate: Arrivals in New York, a new book of essays about the 30-plus years since he left Canada for paved pastures. For Adam Gopnik: A One-Man Show From The New Yorker Festival, Gopnik offers a Moth-style performance of his recollections.
