Literature and politics, art, music, films, architecture: in Manhattan during the Seventies everyone is incredibly gifted. And everyone comes across that bustling young Italian girl: from Norman Mailer to Truman Capote, from Jackie Onassis to Mick Jagger, from Andy Warhol to Lou Reed, Philip Johnson, Robert Mapplethorpe, Warren Beatty, Jack Nicholson, Willem De Kooning.

This book is the tale of a city during its outstandingly long heyday and of its remarkable penchant for transgression. It is the loving yet bitter portrait of a community that never backed down before anything, that enjoyed itself, quarrelled and loved with the same invincible energy. It’s also about the collapse of that world – the story of the ones who decided to stop running and bid farewell to a world which had suddenly become brittle and desperately individualistic.
