A classic work of journalism
Mitchell's classic piece of writing first appeared in part in the New Yorker magazine as a profile of one of the last "true" Bohemians still wandering Greenwich Village. The first part of the book is what appeared in the New Yorker, and the second half is a follow up about what happened to Joe Gould and more of Mitchell learned about him later. It's a poignant portrait of both Gould and the Greenwich Village that used to be-- as well as showing us how the mind of a great writer works. Fast read. Highly recommended.Was this review helpful?
