A biographical sketch of each of the one hundred is followed by descriptions of their homes and haunts. Andy Warhol, John Lennon, Diana Vreeland, Diego Rivera, Dawn Powell, Walt Whitman, Tallulah Bankhead, Truman Capote, Weegee, Babe Ruth and Jackson Pollock are only a few of the luminaries that light up these pages. Indexed by neighborhood, era, and profession, this book includes easy-to-use maps and 100 black-and-white photographs. 250p.
