My first book. And how proud am I! The stories in the book hail from 1986, when I had a blind date with Andy Warhol, to the title story, written in 2009, which has all to do with my thrill of being a published writer. In between, are pieces about Renee Zellweger, Nora Ephron, the fight I had with my pool guy, and all things Hamptons and not. The dog pieces are especially poignant, and there is a longish piece about my 44-year advertising career.
As you’ve read on, I have written on. The sequel, hence the ‘Again Again! in the title of the book has to do with eight more recent pieces in the Star (2010 – 2015) since the original book was published. A bit more broad-based and further reaching from the Hamptons, it deals with retirement (mine) a crazy scaffold story (my building, over five years) a noisy night at the theatre, scary plane rides, every celebrity I have seen over 35 years on the East End, and, well…you’ll just have to read on!
