Beschreibung

By turns, an elegy, a celebration, and a social history, "The Last Fine Time" is a tour de force of lyrical style. Verlyn Klinkenborg chronicles the life of a family-owned restaurant in Buffalo, New York, from its days as a prewar Polish tavern to its reincarnation as George & Eddie's, a swank nightspot serving highballs and French-fried shrimp to a generation of optimistic and prosperous Americans. In the inevitable dimming of the neon sign outside the restaurant, we see both the passing of an old world way of life and the end to the postwar exuberance that was Eddie Wenzek's "last fine time."

Portrait

Verlyn Klinkenborg comes from a family of Iowa farmers. A member of the editorial board of the New York Times. Klinkenborg has been published in the New Yorker, Harper's, Esquire, National Geographic, Smithsonian, and the New York Times Magazine. He is the author of Making Hay and a collection of essays, The Rural Life.

Pressestimmen

"The Wenzeks' history joins what is finally the great American story, that of how the old world came to, and changed, the new. It's a worthy subject for a writer of Klinkenborg's talent, and he does it justice."--, "--Robert Wilson "USA Today "
