Greenwich Village: The American Bohemia, 1910-1960

Republic of Dreams

A richly woven history of Greenwich Village's Golden Age and of the artists, rebels, and eccentrics who make the Village a cultural phenomenon. Ross Wetzsteon presents a vibrant portrait of the Village through the remarkable and often interrelated stories of its legendary residents, including Eugene O'Neill; Edna St. Vincent Millay; Dawn Powell; the fiery and passionate anarchist Emma Goldman; the pioneering advocate of birth control, Margaret Sanger; and the group of Abstract Expressionists including Jackson Pollock.
