In this unusual and lively memoir, author Steven Key Meyers recaptures his early 1970s experience of being a teen-aged underbutler at Caramoor, the great estate in New York’s Westchester County famous for its music festival and house museum—virtually an American equivalent to Downton Abbey. With wit and rue, Meyers recounts the charms and challenges of getting to know the house, its high-society history and its staff, both below-stairs and above, at a time when the rhythms of its way of life were already those of a bygone era.

In taking the reader behind the scenes at garden parties, dinner parties, concerts, receptions and house tours at a time of transition, after the founding Walter Tower Rosen and Lucie Bigelow Rosen family has given over the estate to the public benefit, he assesses the gifts and losses of a transformative experience.
