Nicely researched study of Cookie Mueller's life and work

by HerbVigran (WorldCat user published 2012-04-22) Excellent Permalink

If you're curious about the background and subtext of Cookie's unique existence, this is the book for you. It concentrates on the final decade of her life, when she lived on Bleecker Street and made a name for herself as a writer and downtown persona. Good job!
