Quotes & Awards

  • “Groth’s collected the sort of gossipy anecdotes that would have you hanging on her every word at a literary cocktail party.”

    Entertainment Weekly

  • “A literate, revelatory examination of self.”

    Boston Globe

  • “This is not a juicy tell-all—Groth remained an outsider as much as she was an insider at the magazine throughout her tenure, and legendary editor William Shawn stays a shadowy figure on the floor above throughout the book. Instead, she paints a picture of a naive Midwesterner with a mane of thick blond hair coming of age in the 1960s and 1970s, experiencing the era’s turbulent politics and sexual revolution, all from behind the receptionist desk.”

    Associated Press

  • “Revelatory…Deeply reflective…Groth chronicles the many dazzling personalities whose lives touched, and moved, hers.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “An evocative memoir.”
