positively well written essays about the time period (late 60's/early 70's)
on March 21, 2013
i work in the building where the party in 'radical chic' took place so many years ago
as a doorman/elevator operator and have had the pleasure of meeting and talking
with mr. wolfe a number of times. i was astounded at both his expansive knowledge
of decorating details within the apartment as well as his acuity in capturing the
street lingo and rancor of the 'black panthers' of that era. without ever being the
least bit judgmental, albeit incisive, into the heart of both liberal society folk as
well as staunch revolutionaries of that era. mr. wolfe allows you to truly be
witness to the event as it happens. but then, that's the job of a gifted reporter,
i guess. he asked me my full name one time and still addresses me as 'john'
or 'mr. murray' whenever he sees me in passing by. truly astounding, but then
that's how keeps his pencil sharp, so to speak. details, details, details.
