...this was my first Auchincloss book which I had chanced upon in the stacks in the late 1980s at the B & N on 14th Street. A true window into the personal lives of people that have "squatters rights" to Manhattan: old money New Yorkers. Auchincloss (as opposed to Jay McInerney) is inspired by Henry James, Edith Wharton - Great Authors who also inspire (some of) my own writing...thanks Louis - Im one of your biggest fans! I may never enter your realm of mastery but your work's influence is evident in my style...and no, I was never "tapped for Bulldog" at Yale....
