Natasha Fraser-Cavassoni examines her early career through the lens of her connection with Andy Warhol and other celebrities. This result is a fun, dishy read, but that's not all. It has heart and depth, too.

More of Sari's books…
“The city had seemed like a great place to discover who you are. It just seemed that there was a lot to experience here, as if all you had to do was show up and the city would take care of the rest, making sure you got the education, the maturing, the wising-up you needed. Its crowds, the noise, the endlessness of it all, the perpetual motion, felt exciting then—revealing—just the deep end I needed to jump into. There is something unique about New York, some quality, some matchless, pertinent combination of promise and despair, wizardry and counterfeit, abundance and depletion, that stimulates and allows for a reckoning to occur—maybe even forces it. The city pulls back the curtain on who you are; it tests you and shows you what you are made of in a way that has become iconic in our popular culture, and with good reason.”
Sari Botton, Goodbye to All That: Writers on Loving and Leaving New York

“Leaving home does something to your sense of identity. Either you become more of that place than you ever were while you lived there, or your identity calcifies around the rejection of this place. It is challenging to inhabit the space between these two positions.”
Sari Botton, Goodbye to All That: Writers on Loving and Leaving New York

“And I discovered this was the best thing about New York: you could run away every day if you wanted to and still find yourself in a newly incarnated version of the city.”
Sari Botton, Never Can Say Goodbye: Writers on Their Unshakable Love for New York
