Read full description of the books Intellectual Memoirs: New York, 1936-1938:I know nothing about the author and randomly got this because it sounded so pretentious I couldn't pass it up. For that I recommend it! She was in with the tippy top of "intellectuals," who come off as racist, homophobic, self-righteous and classist. Everyone was quibbling about what kind of communist they were and how the Trotskyites had all the hotties. She keeps saying "oh I described this in detail in one of my books, which I'll now quote" and talks about all the guys she "made love" with, including a random guy from Philadelphia she met on the subway. The best part was her completely humanizing relationship with Philip Rahv. So basically, there are like 10 very good pages, and the rest is a pretty hilarious description of quibbling ("I had just converted to Stalinism") and a boring list of people you've never heard of that she had dinner with. Also, New York has been the same forever. Being in your twenties has been the same forever. The end.
Read information about the authorMary McCarthy (1912–1989) was an American literary critic and author of more than two dozen books including the 1963 New York Times bestseller The Group. Born in Seattle, McCarthy studied at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, New York, and graduated in 1933. After moving to New York City, McCarthy became known for her incisive writing as a contributor to publications such as the Nation, the New Republic, and the New York Review of Books. Her debut novel, The Company She Keeps (1942), initiated her ascent to become one of the most celebrated writers of her generation, a reputation bolstered by the publication of her autobiography Memories of a Catholic Girlhood in 1957, as well as that of her now-classic novel The Group.
