James Wolcott on the 1970s in New York

Monday, October 31, 2011

James Wolcott describes moving to New York, with the dream of being a writer, in fall 1972—when the city was sinking into squalor at the same time the cultural and creative energy was building. His memoir Lucking Out: My Life Getting Down and Semi-Dirty in Seventies New York is a portrait of a critic as a young man, and is also a portrait of a legendary time in New York history.
