"Edward Field's memoir vividly recounts the story of New York bohemian life since the fifties, a world that is now gone. With its tell-all bluntness and
gossipy intimacy, it brings to lifeas no other work that I knowthe spirit of gay bohemia."David Bergman
"Such fine writing, such style, and also, an eye and ear for what we want to see and hear. Edward Field fills in a big gap and offers some deeper ideas about what created some of the great writers and artists of our time. After reading a chapter, I feel like I've just had a martini with Edward Field."Brian Bouldrey, author of The Boom Economy
