Published by Workman Publishing
In 1957, a young Midwestern woman landed a job at The New Yorker. She didn't expect to stay long at the reception desk . . .

But stay she did, for twenty-one years. In addition to taking messages, she ran interference for jealous wives checking on adulterous husbands, drank with famous writers at famous watering holes throughout bohemian Greenwich Village, and was seduced, two-timed, and proposed to by a few of the magazine's eccentric luminaries. Here is an enchanting tale of a woman in search of herself.
