Adam Gopnik is an insightful and engaging writer. He took us to Paris once. This time he invites us on a trip with him and his wife Martha, through SoHo in the 1980's- From the minuscule flat, where the foam rubber bed had to be folded up during the day, where he flambed and sauted and braised his way through some favored French cookbook to the 1500 square foot loft, awash in vermin of every kind.
He goes through a series of jobs, and ends up writing for the New Yorker. He visits and travels with his good friend photographer Richard Avedon. Along the way he was an art critic and is therefore conversant the visual art scene of the time. Those of us in the hinterlands are out of that loop, but it's ok, it's still worth the trip.
