Island of Vice: Theodore Roosevelt’s Doomed Quest to Clean Up Sin-Loving New York

March 2nd, 2012 Posted in Uncategorized

And yet another book I’m jealous about not getting to write myself! But I’m sure Richard Zacks did a great job, and I can’t wait to read Island of Vice. He’s getting some great reviews.

“Here is young Teddy Roosevelt as the reformist New York City Police Commissioner confronted in 1895 with a cabal of unaccountably wealthy police officials, whole neighborhoods of brothels, and the paws of the Tammany Tiger in everything. A delicious municipal history, impeccably researched, excitingly told.” —E. L. Doctorow, award-winning author of Ragtime.

Louis CK is filming two blocks away from me as I type. I need to get back out there and watch. If it’s not too late already. I found out as I was walking back from swimming and that was hours ago. Where has the time gone?? But they were at Hudson and Grove Street.

One of the banners I was considering using to comply with Facebook’s new look. I may use later.

    I looked for you on Facebook, and you come up, but it’s just info from Wikipedia. I’ll email you a screenshot of the page.

    My author page is here, but I’m seriously considering deleting this one. It just feels redundant to make people go to two places.
