Nimble and hilarious account of Ben Sonnenberg, founder of Grand Street magazine, whose father was Benjamin Sonnenberg, public relations wizard, collector, and owner of 19 Gramercy Park. “I printed only what I liked; never once did I publish an editorial statement; I offered no writers’ guidelines; and I stopped when I couldn’t turn the pages anymore.” He had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in his thirties, and by 1990 he gave up the magazine. Inscription on the title page to author and critic Thomas M. Disch, “For Tom, A Salute!” and with Sonnenberg’s stamped signature below
