You can dip in and out of this book at your leisure, or devour it all in one sitting (as I did). Either way, you're in for an entertaining ride.
I feel as if I've just spent more than two hours with a somewhat amiable, slightly cranky individual who has witnessed much of the literary and artistic goings on on both Coasts for the past several decades from Andy Warhol to David Foster Wallace.
A pithy raconteur.
