The Company They Kept: Writers on Unforgettable Friendships

The Company They Kept: Writers on Unforgettable Friendships Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now in paperback

Many of the illustrious contributors to The New York Review of Books have had deep and abiding relationships-both personal and intellectual-with other poets, writers, artists, composers, and scientists of equal stature. The Company They Kept is a collection of twenty-seven accounts of these varied friendships-most of them undeniably fraught with “idiosyncratic complexities.” From Anna Akhmatovas dreamlike description of wandering through Paris with the impoverished Modigliani to Joseph Brodskys account of his first meeting with Isaiah Berlin (from which he returned to report, around the kitchen table, to Stephen Spender and W. H. Auden), these pieces are tantalizing glimpses into the lives of those who have made The New York Review of Books into what Esquire magazine calls “the premier literary-intellectual magazine in the English language.”
