Area Code 212: New York Days, New York Nights
Area Code 212 is filled with idiosyncratic delights and oddities of New York's wittiest social chroniclers, Tama Janowitz. Included in this book is her hilarious account of Andy Warhol's eighties blind date club; her brief moment of celebrity as an elderly teenage extra in a ZZ Top video; the day she tested mentally retarded on an IQ test; and many other revealing tales of New York life, including its parties, its restaurants, and its fashion. Janowitz gives us her unique lowdown on her 1990s conversion from Manhattan to Brooklyn, on hairless dogs and ferrets, babies, the outer boroughs, big hair days, and bad hair days.
