The promo stuff says in part,
The author of WITH HITLER IN NEW YORK, LINCOLN'S DOCTOR'S DOG, I SURVIVED CARACAS TRAFFIC and other short story collections has kept a daily diary for forty years, since he was 18 in the summer of 1969. Here are entries from his diary for summers from 1976 to 1979 as he struggles with adulthood and his fledgling writing career, from his first acceptances by magazines to the hardcover publication of his book by a large New York publisher. Set in 1970s New York City, this is a vivid picture of what it was like to be a struggling young artist in that era.
