City Guide

by Lee Montgomery

Lee Montgomery, associate publisher and editorial director of Tin House Books, moved to Portland, Oregon, twelve years ago but never meant to stay. It was a charming Victorian house, the rain and clouds, and the energy of the places featured in this guide that compelled the writer in her to hunker down and take advantage of a city brimming with literary offerings.
