Product description

Review

Los Angeles Times Book Review A sweeping yet intimate history of America's most famous neighborhood.

The New Yorker Wetzsteon...incisively dissects the contradictions and conflicts...inherent in Village life. But he also evokes its energy and its sense of immense possibility.

Los Angeles Times Book Review Anyone who cares about American culture should read Republic of Dreams.

Newsday Wetzsteon's rich, amusing, inspired history is pure Technicolor...and gives the 21st century reader an unparalleled introduction to America's first true bohemia.

Houston Chronicle A deeply researched and beautifully wrought feast of information and poetics...a sort of Plutarch's Lives of...the obsessed pilgrims who founded the Republic of Dreams. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
