Read full description of the books New York Days:In the critically acclaimed "New York Days, " Willie Morris recalls his triumphant, exciting, and ultimately devastating years as the youngest ever editor-in-chief of "Harper's," America's oldest magazine, when he was at the center of the nation's stunning cosmos of writing, publishing, politics, and the arts. "New York Days" captures the spirit of the 60's: the dazzling parties, the fervent intellectualism, and the sense of slowly decaying idealism as the country plunged deeper into a tragic war and intensifying social chaos. In the midst of this scene is Willie Morris, exalted, exhilarated, and eventually almost consumed by his brilliant, electric, enervating New York days.
