Save the Village, Michele Herman’s fictional tale of life in Greenwich Village, is a literary love letter to her longtime neighborhood. Herman’s protagonist, Becca Cammeyer — a Village tour guide living in a fifth-floor walk-up with her aging dog — barely escapes a devastating tragedy that forces her to confront her own paralysis, her survivor’s guilt, and the mess she’s made of her life. She embarks on wildly improbable reconciliations and new relationships, reflecting on a changing world and her beloved Greenwich Village.
