From 1954 to 1981, Maeve Brennan wrote for The New Yorker's "Talk of the Town" department under the pen name "The Long-Winded Lady." Her unforgettable sketches--prose snapshots of life in small restaurants, cheap hotels, and crowded streets of Times Square and the Village--together form a timeless, bittersweet tribute to what she called the "most reckless, most ambitious, most confused, most comical, the saddest and coldest and most human of cities." First published in 1969, The Long-Winded Lady is a celebration of one of The New Yorker's finest writers.
