9780140232233: Manhattan, When I Was Young

With Manhattan, When I Was Young, Mary Gantwell, a former writer and editor at Mademoiselle and Vogue and now a writer at the New York Times, gives us an elegant and lyrical autobiographical account of a time and place that for some exists only in imagination. But this is a life as it was actually lived, with romance, passion, and no little share of pain. Set in five different apartments in Manhattan, each one with its own character and charm, Cantwell's story winds through its phases, from single working girl to young wife and mother, from career choices and divorce to rediscovery. The world Cantwell inhabits - that of magazine and book publishing and fashion and the middle-class bohemia of downtown New York at a golden moment in time - is brought beautifully to life in a memoir that is sure to bring her new readers and renewed acclaim.

Review:

Cantwell writes with breathless intensity ( PEOPLE)

A spare, beautifully etched memoir ( TIME 'Her courage as a wife and working mother has a life and inspiration all its own')

LOS ANGELES TIMES ( 'By offering so rich a narrative, the author stokes a reader's hunger for ever more disclosure and intimacy . in the days when New York stood for all that was adult, and when being an adult actually looked like everything desirable')

NEW YORK TIMES

Book Description:
