About this show

With his signature wit and keen observational eye for the manners of everyday life, best-selling author and beloved New Yorker staff writer Adam Gopnik chronicles his early days in the tumultuous decade of the 1980s — when a life begun in the smallest apartment in Manhattan opened the gate to professional misadventures in the worlds of high fashion, art, and public speaking. Jumping forward 20 years, Gopnik also tells the story of raising two children in the utterly different New York of the aughts and builds a moving portrait in which imaginary friends, misunderstood texts, and even steam-bath sexuality manage to confound and shape his understanding.
