In this stunning new collection of personal essays, distinguished author Phillip Lopate weaves together the colorful threads of a life well lived and brings us on an invigorating and thoughtful journey through memory, culture, parenthood, the trials of marriage both young and old, and an extraordinary look at New York's storied past and present.

Opening with his family life, Lopate invites us first into his rough-and-tumble childhood on the streets of Brooklyn, learning the all-important art of cowardice. From there, he takes us to the ball game to discuss the trouble with ex-baseball fans; to high tea at the Plaza; to the theater to dissect Virginia Woolf 's opinion that film should keep its hands off literature; and to visit his brother, radio personality Leonard Lopate, offering a rare glimpse into the unique sibling rivalry between two men at the top of their fields.

Throughout this rich, ambitious, deliciously readable collection, Lopate's easy, conversational style pushes his piercing insights to new depths, celebrating the life of the mindits triumphs and limitationsand illuminating memories and feelings both distant and immediate. The result is a charming and spirited new book from the undisputed master of the form.
