About this title


At the heart of the Jazz Age publicity was the world of the Algonquin Round Table - the storied collection of glittering writers, actors, and socialites who embody this distant era. This is the legacy of the legend. How these celebrated, immensely talented people were blinded by their own press releases, and crippled by an enormous self-consciousness that stunted them both intellectually and personally.
