"Oh, how I wished I'd met Bart's great aunt May, and sat next to him as he whisked Perry Ellis through the city, and stopped by for a visit with him and Ted in their cheerful nest on Jane Street, but in fact having just read his charming and inspiring memoir of an American boy-to-manhood, I have!"
- Mary Randolph Carter, best-selling author and longtime creative director for Ralph Lauren
Style is the art of living, and it's always changing and evolving. This evocative jewel of a memoir tells the story of one writer's adventures and experiences, and how they shaped his own sense of personal style and taste. From growing up in upstate New York to summers on Martha's Vineyard to life in Greenwich Village in New York City, this book recounts in words and pictures the places and people that have influenced the author.
What emerges in his story, accompanied by approximately 130 black and white photos, is the theme of American style, which is elegant and easy-going, and refined and relaxed at the same time. And so this story of self-discovery and invention is also an ode to American style. Elegant, educational, entertaining, and inspiring, the book explores how the writer actually looks, and how he looks at the world.
