Stephen Birmingham - Our Crowd

Our Crowd PDF download
A novelist who has specialized in creating tales of the rich and well placed offers an insider's view of one of the wealthiest segments of an affluent city: Jewish upper—class life in New York.Working with diaries, letters, and personal reminiscences supplied by members of interwoven families—Loeb, Lehman, straus, seligman, and Guggenheism, among others—Stephen Birmingham has assembled a remarkable composite portrait. some of his tales are wildly funny. others are poignant. All are set within a world of numbing opulence—Fifth Avenue mansions, chateaux on Long Island, castles in Westchester, vast art collections—millions given away so quietly and steadily that they have never properly been counted. This economic power and unique culture was played out alongside—but never a part of—the gentile establishment.Remarkable individuals, resplendent dynasties—out of the elegant fabric of their lives, Birmingham has fashioned superb social history.
