The revised edition of my 2018 book Devil's Mile will be out in July 2023, in paperback!


Here's what the critics had to say: 


"Alexiou guides us through this checkered history with gusto." ―The New York Times Book Review


"A lively portrait of New York's 'other street'...New York buffs, especially those nostalgic for a grittier time, will find this a learned pleasure." —Kirkus Reviews


"It's a great pleasure to have this detailed and fascinating history of New York's most notorious avenue, the Bowery." —Jim Jarmusch, filmmaker, musician


"Alice Sparberg Alexiou makes us miss the Bowery― more than we ever knew we could." ―The NY Journal of Books
