Landing in New York

ByFelicia Rosshandler

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
With a need to belong and a desire to lead different lives, Felicia Rosshandler is torn between adventure and meaning. These memoir stories chronicle the masks she used to navigate the chaos and glamor of mid-century New York. She explores Village bohemia and the budding sexual freedoms of her time, she drops out of college and runs off to existential Paris with an artist, her languages open doors to plum jobs in journalism, including Life magazine. She finds her way into the city’s art and literary circles but her primary focus is never on career as much as it is on a search for permanence through tumultuous love affairs. Marriage finally offers the security of family but comes at a price. It is perhaps the curse of the refugee to never feel totally whole, to always yearn for something that has been lost.
