Marriage, Friendship, and Betrayal among the New York Intellectuals between the Depression and the Vietnam Era
An illuminating group biography of the last "public intellectuals," who spanned the era from the Depression to Vietnam and feminism, from Partisan Review to The New York Review of Books, and who knew one another as friends, rivals, spouses, and lovers: Robert Lowell, Mary McCarthy, Edmund Wilson, Hannah Arendt, Elizabeth Hardwick, Allen Tate, Jean Stafford, and others. David Laskin's focus here is on the women and how they shaped the dynamics of the group.
