Prodigal Sons

The New York Intellectuals and Their World

Alexander Bloom

Bloom's study of the New York intellectuals--Lionel Trilling, Alfred Kazin, Daniel Bell, Harold Rosenberg, Saul Bellow, and Irving Kristol, among them--retraces their common past, from their New York City ghetto upbringing and education through their radicalization in the '30s to their preeminence in the postwar literary and academic world.
