"Here, collected for the first time in one edition, are Mary Cantwell's three beautifully etched and unflinchingly honest memoirs. Cantwell's first book, American Girl, evoked the delights of her youth in a small New England town; her second, Manhattan, When I Was Young, told of her blossoming magazine career in New York's glory years of the 1950s, her marriage and her children, and that marriage's decline. Speaking with Strangers finds Cantwell alone, a single mother struggling in the big city, bereft of her husband but bolstered by friends, thriving in her career yet personally sad."--BOOK JACKET.
