About this show

The novelist and essayist discusses her luminous and intensely personal new memoir of her life in the New York literary circles of the fifties to sixties, with her daughter, the cultural critic Katie Roiphe. "A year and a half ago when my mother handed me the manuscript of her new memoir, she had never mentioned a single one of the racy or disturbing things in it..."- Katie Roiphe "Art and Madness riveted me. Women were expected to be muses not writers. Roiphe tells the complex truth about those decades." - Erica Jong "With all the skepticism she lacked at the time, Anne Roiphe revisits her flight into the dazzling bohemia of the fifties-sixties New York... a razor-sharp testimonial to a time of headspinning delusions." - Molly Haskell
