5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious Time Travel, September 10, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I loved Martin's biography of Frederick Law Olmsted, so I looked forward very much to this book for another fascinating look at an important piece of 19th century American history and culture. And, I got it to this heart's content. Though the story is weighted toward Walt Whitman, as the most famous of the Manhattan Bohemians for our time, it is really an ambitious, multi-subject biography of a remarkable group of artists, written with a light, accessible style that suits the subject. Martin takes us right into the vibrant, iconoclastic world of these first American Bohemians -- what they ate, drank, loved, wrote about, and otherwise consumed in their intense, often very short, lives. Threading through all the parallel tales is the giant figure of Whitman himself. Martin gives us an unforgettable portrait of this great poet that will linger in readers' minds and hearts for a long time to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Devoured this lovely and trenchant book..., June 29, 2011
This review is from: Paris Was Ours (Paperback)
As the veteran of a 2-year stint in Paris, I savored each and every one of the essays in PARIS WAS OURS. Paris was mine, once, and this slim volume brought it all back, the good and the not-so-good.
