W. W. Norton •  Every day at 2:00 p.m. recluse Angelo Rizzuto would leave his room in a crummy single-room occupancy hotel to photograph New York City obsessively. Shortly before he died in 1967, he left his 60,000 photographs to the Library of Congress. Michael Lesy brings to light a forgotten tortured soul in an account that is disturbing and profoundly moving. “Rizutto’s near-daily shots of New York and its inhabitants have yielded a fascinating, if unsettling portrait of that city.” —New York Times Book Review | 8.25 x 10 inches, 128 pages
