Goodbye To All That

Let's call it a modernization, but updated with more frustration than melancholy, to Joan Didion's 1967 essay about leaving NYC, "Goodbye To All That," which had been playing on repeat next to my bed, but 40 years later is revealed to have a better b-side: "Au Revoir, New York 'Literary' Scene!"


Balk: "Expressing disappointment with the scene is the best way to become part of the scene."

I've been exposed.

Choire: "It's as funny that everyone thinks 'everyone' goes to these parties as it is to think the attendees have power over anything."
