Description
In the same absorbing style of his Lost Hollywood, David Wallace here presents the personalities and events that he argues made Prohibition-era New York City the cultural and financial capital of the world.

"The 1920s' distinctive cultural creation, the celebrity, is the real star of this gallery of famous New Yorkers.... Take Fanny Brice, then a popular comedienne. She was the inspiration for the hit musical and 1968 movie Funny Girl.... Others are novelist Anita Loos (Gentlemen Prefer Blondes), mobster Lucky Luciano (The Godfather), and a Harlem nightclub (The Cotton Club).... Also including figures from journalism, prostitution, politics, music, and dance, Wallace's tome recalls the fizz and biz of 1920s publicity."Booklist
