This memoir of a particular time and place is as much about why that was so as it is about Groth's fascinating relationships with John Berryman, Joseph Mitchell, Muriel Spark, as well as E.J. Kahn, Calvin Trillin, Renata Adler, Peter DeVries, Charles Addams, and many other New Yorker contributors and bohemian denizens of Greenwich Village in its heyday. Eventually, Groth would have to leave The New Yorker in order to find herself.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
this is not ;a well written book it is like a book report . . it is difficult to care about her travails she starts out saying she wanted to be one and stopped could and gives us no reason to pay attention to anything she thinks if one has read aboutt hese people already there appears to be an absence of insight...yup she had fun, well, I don't have 7 hours for htis.
