About the Author

Victor Chen has worked as a writer and editor in New York for many years. In the 1970s he was a book reviewer and Talk of the Town reporter for The New Yorker, and part of his reason for his self-publishing several books is to reprint some of his New Yorker work. He was born in China and educated in the United States and Britain. A consequence of his education has been a constant and unending stream of fund-raising appeals from institutions who seem not to understand that he is one of their products who has not gotten rich. Victor lives in the same rent-controlled Riverside Drive apartment his family moved into in 1954. The apartment has been through a marriage and has seen a long series of congenial housemates.
