Welcome to the wonderful world of Tama Janowitz, New York's wittiest social
chronicler. Littered with idiosyncratic delights and oddities, here are
hilarious stories of her eighties blind date club with Andy Warhol; her
brief moment of celebrity as an elderly teenage extra in a ZZ Top video;
the day her sweat turned green, and testing as mentally retarded on an IQ
test. Alongside revealing stories of New York life, its parties, its
restaurants and fashion, Janowitz gives us her unique low-down on hairless
dogs and ferrets, babies and Brooklyn, big hair and bad hair days. Self-
deprecating, funny and often touching, AREA CODE 212 is a sparkling and
unputdownable collection.
