The story of New York's '21' Club is the story of American glamour in the twentieth century. In his star-studded memoir, saloonkeeper Peter Kriendler―younger brother of Jack Kriendler, cofounder of '21'―paints a spellbinding portrait of the club through its early years, its birth as a Greenwich Village speakeasy, its move to midtown during Prohibition, the tough days of the Great Depression, the dazzling Camelot nights, and the swinging go-go years as it became America's most legendary restaurant and a second home to the most powerful people in business, politics, and entertainment.

About the Author:

Kriendler joined his brother's business shortly after it began in the 1920's. He became managing director and eventually the President of 21.

H. Paul Jeffers (1934-2009) was an established military historian and author of seventy books. He worked as an editor and producer at ABC, CBS and NBC, and is the only person to have been news director of both of New York City's all-news radio stations. He taught journalism at New York University, Syracuse University, and Boston University. His books include the novels" A Grand Night for Murder" and "What Mommy Said", and the nonfiction "Marshall: Lessons in Leadership" with Alan Axelrod. He lived in New York, NY.

H. Paul Jeffers has published over fifty works of fiction and nonfiction, including, most recently, Disaster by the Bay. A broadcast journalist for more than three decades, his other books include The Good Cigar and High Spirits; three volumes on Theodore Roosevelt; and the only biography of the late Sal Mineo. Jeffers has taught writing and journalism at NYU and other universities. He lives in New York City.

From Booklist:

Even today, 21 W. 52d Street in New York is one of the world's toniest addresses --the home of 21, the restaurant catering to the world's most famous people. Kriendler's brother, Jack, founded the establishment as a speakeasy during Prohibition, and Pete, now in his nineties, recalls how there were sliding doors and chutes designed to ditch all the booze when the feds raided the place. The history of 21 is rich, and we're all at the bar to listen to the anecdotes. There's even a retelling of one of the most infamous Hollywood incidents, which was actually set in New York: the set-to involving director Otto Preminger and agent Swifty Lazar over who had the rights to Truman Capote's In Cold Blood. This is a fun and personal look at a bit of Americana; after all, who wouldn't want to sit at the bar and listen to stories like these? Joe Collins
