More on Walt Whitman’s Franklin Evans in The Brooklyn Paper. The paper interviews editor Christopher Castiglia who comments, "“Whitman’s own life experience traveling back and forth from Brooklyn
is very much a part of the novel. . . . It embodies many
of the anti-urbanization anxieties Brooklyn was faced with at a time
when the landscape was changing faster than people thought possible.”
