About this Book

Print Excerpt


But whatever happened in the world outside Edward's Roosevelt Island apartment, dinner was a magical interlude. We shared cocktails, a bottle of wine, and whatever Edward was inspired to cook that day. Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, and Ute Lemper sang in the background, but sometimes there was just comfortable silence and the wind whistling outside his fourteenth floor windows.
