From the 1930s to the 1990s, from backstage on Broadway to clubs, grand mansions, and Soho lofts, Veteran New Yorker writer Brendan Gill takes on a charming, witty, and lively tour through a New York City shaped less by geography than by talents and energy of some of its most celebrated inhabitants. Drawing upon recollections of more than half a century of work and play in New York City, Gill brings to vivid life forty or so of the most interesting people he met during the course of his professional life. Includes an Index.
