Reviews

"THE RED LEATHER DIARY is a fascinating book-inventive and inspiring." -- Erica Jong, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Fear of Flying
"Koppel's love of New York is obvious in the details she draws from Florence's diary, which show how the city has changed in ways both big and small. An entertaining and enjoyable work."--Library Journal
"THE RED LEATHER DIARY is a fascinating book--inventive and inspiring."--Erica Jong, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Fear of Flying
"After a front-page story appeared in the New York Times Sunday City section, interest in Florence's fascinating story prompted the author to write a full-length book that works as both a biography and a spellbinding glimpse into a vanished era."--Booklist
"New York Times writer Lily Koppel's The Red Leather Diary melds three life-affirming subjects--Florence Wolfson's journal of life in 1930s Manhattan, Koppel's discovery of it in a Dumpster decades later, and the meeting of the two women--into one enchanting memoir."--Elle
"Florence's life reads like E.L. Doctorow's Ragtime in places, with all the famous paths crossed and situations experienced; while descriptions of city life recall Marjorie Hart's Summer at Tiffany... Together, Koppel and Florence take readers through a world dizzy with new ideas, rhythms and inventions."--BookPage
"Skillful reporting, fine prose and [an] excellent eye for period detail. . . . A story about not one but two lovable characters--and the city that brought them together."--New York Times Book Review
"In The Red Leather Diary, Lily Koppel finds an old journal in a Dumpster, gets lost in its rich take on 1930s New York and, improbably, tracks down the now-90-year-old woman whose life--real and imagined--fills its worn pages."--Reader's Digest (Editors' Choice)
"A window into a fascinating and privileged world. . . . Rewarding."--Publishers Weekly
"Sparked by a felicitous discovery in an Upper West Side dumpster, New York Times writer Lily Koppel spins an enthralling true fairy tale about a Depression-era ingenue."--Vogue
