Robert Anasi - The Last Bohemia: Scenes from the Life of Williamsburg, Brooklyn

Friday, October 12, 2012 - 6:00pm

Robert Anasi discusses The Last Bohemia: Scenes from the Life of Williamsburg, Brooklyn ($15.00), a firsthand account of the transformation of Williamsburg from factory backwater to artists’ district to trendy hub and high-rise colony. Passionate and provocative, The Last Bohemia is a celebration of the fever dream of bohemia, a lament, and a cautionary tale.

Robert Anasi is the author of The Gloves: A Boxing Chronicle, which George Plimpton called “as good as any I’ve read about the sport.” He is a regular reviewer for The Times Literary Supplement, and teaches at the University of California, Irvine.
