Pull up a ringside seat to the exultant pageant of New York's night life, commerce and scoiety, from the Cotton Club to Wall Street to Broadway. Charles Wohlsetter was a young acolyte to George Gershwin, Bernard Baruch, Abe Burrows, J. Paul Getty and George S. Kaufman. He was admitted as a junior member of the Algonquin Round Table with Dorothy Parker, Robert Benchley, Franklin P. Adams and Alexander Woollcott. His Algonquin cohorts would have enjoyed the wit and warmth of this fascinating memoir on the front lines of the American twentieth century.
