Memoir. Poetry. "These irresistibly amusing and engaging recollections of the author's encounters with the great and near-great artists and poets who washed ashore in the Hamptons has a special charm, as our intrepid protagonist plays unofficial chauffeur, therapist, straight-man and witness, always with retrospective self-awareness, insight and bittersweet gratitude."—Phillip Lopate"DELICIOUSLY DROLL. Stars-in-the-eyes young poet meets literary and art world icons in the Hamptons. And re-meets and reconsiders. And admires. And continues to honor and to create his own work."—Laura Wells, The East Hampton Star"INTELLIGENCE, FORESIGHT AND WIT....There is something here that is at once deep, engaging and profound."—Neil Leadbeater, Galatea Resurrects
